I have 3 networks running in each floor at my office. All the three routers are in a box. They are 24/7 on and no cooling is provided. Is cooling needed?

Well Hunter Williamson, any hardware system needs to work at a proper temperature which not too hot and not to cold. That temperature needs to be maintained if you want the hardware to perform efficiently for a longer duration of time. Same is the case with the routers. They dissipate heat and that can effect the other routers as all are in a box. You need to have a cooling mechanism to make sure that they do not get heat up a lot. You might not be feeling the problem now but it will be a problem in future. So better try avoiding the problem initially than to be spending more later on when the problem actually occurs. I hope you got my point and am sure you will have a cooling mechanism installed pretty soon now.

Hi there ,

It seems you need help regarding cooling of routers . You should definitely remove those 3 of them immediately from a box , Each router should be kept away from each other , or else temperature may increase rapidly and cause burns to the motherboards in it . 

If you still like to keep in a box then provide proper air circulation by providing an exhaust fan in one side and the other side provide a slit so that air can come in from that side and the exhaust can let it out through the exhaust side.

This will create an air circulation where cold air comes in absorbs the heat from the routers and then the exhaust fan pulls it out.
