I got a Netgear DGN2000, but it seems to get rather warm.
Now so far I have taken it apart and fitted some passive heatsinks to the chips that are producing heat.
That's all fine and well, but it seemed to be still hot within the casing, so I drilled holes into the casing to improve airflow.
Still it gets hot, so I had the bright idea of fitting a 120mm fan on the outside blowing into it, but don't know where to solder/attach the fan wires.
I suppose it should be fine as it runs on 12V, so no shorts should occur.

Anybody else tried this?

Thanks

why not get a thermalright passive cooler, like the Venemous X and attatch that to it?

I'm kidding. a 80mm fan would suffice for a need like this, would imagine you'd want to undervolt it and solver to the 12v line. make sure to insulate all the wires etc aswell.
