The radio adapters available in the market from AP manufacturers like
Linksys have a maximum value of TX-power. I am about 99.9% sure that
the WRT54GL's max power is 100mW (others like D-Link, Netgear etc fix
it to 30mW).
At a 100mW TX-power, you shouldn't have cooling issues, unless if you
are installing this under abnormal conditions like sunny outdoors, or
in an outdoor enclosure without ventilation.
Also, the heating issues arise due to the processor performance, and
only to a negligible extent the 802.11/WLAN radio.
Hope that helps
