Once the verdex wireless is associated with an AP you should be able to "iwconfig wlan0 power on", which should drop the power consumption and heat generated quite a bit.

After about 10 minutes, the wifi module on the netpro was pretty hot, also the processor chip on Gumstix Verdex(I can't put my fingers on). I'd like to know is this a normal case?
