My Plusnet router makes a hissing sound

Hi

My Plusnet router makes a hissing sound whenever it's receiving data — downloading web-pages or files, streaming, etc.

This seems to be a problem experienced by others.

I've tried to call, but there's no answer.

Could you send me a replacement?

fwiw, try phoning Plusnet as soon as their offices open. Normally 8am on weekdays.  Usually little or no queue.

Re: My Plusnet router makes a hissing sound

mine makes hiding sound too, constantly, and it's right by my bed, really annoying. Did you get through to them. What was the solution?  Thanks

I gave-up trying to contact them, but turning-off the 5Ghz, in the router settings, as suggested above, worked.

Thanks - I'm going to try to switch to old BT router if that doesn't work, I'll try turning of the 5Ghz.  

 

Many thanks.
