Reboot your router now to flush out malware, says the FBI...

Might not be a bad idea to update the firmware if it is available as well.

This effects many Routers and DSL Routers (DSL Modem) supplied by DSL providers.

I have a secure router in my home (because of business), but I still updated that as well.

Reboot your Router !!

Thanks for the input Dave & Bass - I'll take a look at the Samsung.

Overheating sucks - had the iPads do that a couple times and the cases don't help in that regard either.

Dave - no help on your request, but a question for ya.  How is the sunlight readability of the surface pros?  I'm looking at upgrading our field equipment for GIS mapping/etc to them.  Currently on Apple products for it, they're OK but anything in bright sun is terrible.
