SVortex 5:32 pm on November 13th, 2017 6 My XB6 is located in my basement and its external case temperature reads 80ºF / 26.7ºC and the fan exhaust reads 110ºF / 43.3ºC. For reference, this is with one ethernet port used, and 5 devices 'connected' to the 5ghz band, under low/no load. Have to get within 2 feet (in a quiet room) to notice it. I got one of these for my old ARRIS SB8200, which would also get really hot. The wifi pods do a good job of extending the wifi to dead spots but they are limited to a maximum of 200Mbps of throughput so you sacrifice speed for coverage. I believe Ookla runs more tests out the gate hence slightly slower tests results than Netflix speedtest. Thank you for your post!

The XB6 gateways have an internal fan that is always running, so it is normal for these devices to run warm. This is a much better router than the Comcast supplied Arris Xb6 that comcast supply with X1 gigabit. I fear it becoming a fire hazard.

Let us know how things go after the technician visits today. Its a fan hum, or case vibration/resonance when the fan spins up.

I am happy with that as my objective is to run my network using the Shaw gear going forward.

They did some sort of remote reboot and told me the overheating Arris XB6 was normal.

Same design, don't recall if it has a fan too though.

Mine just has a slight hum to it, I wouldn't say it's excessive.

I wish I had a closet to put this in, but don't really want to rewire the house. I'm guessing most people have enough background noise to mask it.

Same for Shaw speedtest in the browser. * or just to vent about how shitty and monopolistic Comcast is! My past modem on Shaw 150 use to always hit 150.

I have the Arris BlueCurve modem and have solid speeds on the 5G network.
