I don’t think so — my modem always feels cool to the touch. Is your modem located somewhere where air can circulate freely around it?
It could be mildly warm, as any electronic device that uses power is ok, but 'warm' is kind of a subjective term.
Just as long as it's not hot enough to touch without burning yourself. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but you don't want the device to overheat. In those cases it could mean that there's not enough ventilation, or there's a power issue somewhere.
Mine feels somewhat warm at the top, where it vents out, but the rest is cool to the touch.
Warm is okay. Hot is bad.
With that said, having space around it so that it can get an airflow is important, as it is designed to keep cool by drawing room air from around the bottom edges and exhausting it through the top by convection. Because of this the top can feel warm.
Good question--as your fellow community members have already mentioned, it's ok if the modem feels warm. I would be concerned if it were really hot to the touch, however. I double-checked your diagnostics and everything looks fine. I would also make sure to follow everyone's advice to ensure the modem has enough space around it so it's properly ventilated.
