comment Why would wireless routers become less reliable over time?
I Am Not An Electrical Engineer, but ... Intermittent failures can cause firmware to hang. Heat, or rather the expansion and contraction of metal bits from exposure to heat, can cause intermittent failures or unexpected states in the integrated circuits that make up the controller. It's not so much that you're letting it cool when you power cycle, you're just clearing anything stateful and reloading the firmware from ROM.
