wolfdale Posted November 16, 2013 Share Posted November 16, 2013 I was using reaver today for about an hour and the pineapple had a burn smell to it. I measured temperatures (with the case off) with my IR thermometer and the heat seems to come from the RTL8187 chipset (about 50 degrees celsius) and I couldn't keep my finger on it for more than 2 seconds... I then measured idle temps (i gave ifconfig wlan1 down command) and it was 40 degrees. Measurements were taken with the case off so the temperatures would get higher with the case. Whats the operational temperature of the chip? Should i be concerned ( plastic burn smell..) about the temperatures? Thanks in advance.
