I am guessing that most of you folks are like me and run your routers (wireless or otherwise) 24 x 7. Mine have been running in my house pretty much non-stop for about two years now.
I started thinking that these things do have a limited life and are just going to die at some point. Which brings to mind some questions:
1. How long is it reasonable to expect these things to last? 3, 4, 5 years of continuous use. . . (if anyone has some MTBF [mean time between failure] data that would be great.
2. What happens when they fail? Do they just stop working or are the signs that they are going to fail?
3. What's your experience? (Brand name / model / number of years running)
