Cable Modem and Direct Sunlight

Oceanic Time Warner's Scientific Atlanta cable modem would mysteriously screw up and randomly drop lots of packets every afternoon.  The cable modem and wireless routers were high-up off the ground (for better wireless signal strength) right in front of a window.  I simply put the black plastic cable modem on the floor below the window, and the cable modem began working perfectly.  Direct sunlight was causing the cable modem to overheat mysteriously only in the afternoon. =)
