Wireless router overheating?

So I've only recently caught up with the modern world and started using broadband (about a month or so). Have had no problems at all with my wireless router seemingly overheating up untill now. I hooked my xbox 360 up to it a few days back and since then the router has been pretty warm to touch, even with my xbox shut down and my laptop offline. Despite this everything is still working fine. Just wondering if this is normal or not, or I've made myself a fool asking a silly question?  Roll eyes
