the airport extreme card in my intel iMac is generating much heat: 63-67°C 1. Is there any solution to decrease the output power to reduce the heat generation? 2. change the radio frequency to 5GHz? because in this case -I think- less output power is enough for airport communication. I think there is no express card power management utility maybe direct terminal commands can solve the problem regarding that the aluminum housing affects the signal broadcast
the 3 cooling fans are working permanently also displayed by the widget+I've reduced the radio output power on my airport express base station to 10% and it is generating less heat than earlier with full power
I just downloaded and installed that widget and don't see where it records the Airport card temperature. It reports the CPU and HD temps as well as the backside and drivebay temps. Where is the Airport card temp reported??
