Strange Data Stream Characters

I'm getting strange characters in the data stream from my Billion 7800N router.
Can anyone offer an explanation.

Re: Strange Data Stream Characters

@Strat, Don't take this the wrong way, but you will damage your Router with that lot on it, your Router needs airflow around it, you are blocking the vents on your Router, so you will half it's life, you could do with some feet on it to improv the airflow around it.

@Midnight Caller Your concern is most appreciated however rest assured the Billion 7800n is well endowed with ventilation on all six faces and as a result runs cool even with my friends scattered across the top. Smiley
It does have small feet which raise it 4mm off the shelf.

I think the big orange bit on the router must be a duff line terminator thats full of random stuff Wink

I suppose they might be Escape characters  (old teletype joke)
