Netgear A6150 USB wifi adapter stops working and gets hot

Hi,

I've been using my A6150 WiFi adapters for a few weeks now, (I have two installed on my IBM PC compatibles with Windows 10) and I noticed one stopped working this morning.

I pulled it out of the USB socket, and it was uncomfortably hot to touch. After I put it back in, it started working fine.

It sounds to me like a firmware bug, so is there any updated firmware available for these?

Has anyone else noticed this overheating behaviour?

Thanks in advance,

Roger V.
