I use att dsl; my modem is pretty warm. Is this a sign of impending failure, or a normal thing? It's a plastic Motorola modem.

I share a modem with 4 other computers in the house and it's pretty hot. It doesn't mean anything bad, but if you want to be sure, put a fan near it.

Thanks. For me, the problem with a lot of computer related problems is that I don't have to deal with them often enough to get a grip on how to handle them.
