Hi, can anyone tell me on the life expectancy of live boxes?
We have been with SFR for 3 years or so. Our live box has lately been showing certain signs - like the yellow light coming on often, for increasingly longer periods, which knocks out our internet connection although I can still see that some data is being exchanged, albeit very slowly. The other problem is that it also knocks out our phone as we are on VOIP. It happens at all times of the day.
Having worked with really old Macs years ago, I tried just powering off the device for a while and then starting up again - this has worked so far, but I don't think it's a good idea to keep doing this. I've also change the position of the device so that more air is circulating around the whole thing to keep it as cool as possible. I also try and keep it dust-free. Given that it comes back well after a power down I suspect it's starting to overheat.
Is there a limited life on these items, and if so what do you have to do to get a replacement?
Thanks if you can help.
