Router has loud high pitched pulsing noise

Ive had my router about a month and it makes a strange high pitched repetitive pulse noise. I can hear it over the noise of the tv especially at night. What is this? Can anyone help?

Re: Router has loud high pitched pulsing noise

Is it coming from the power adapter or the router itself?

The Hub One is known for making an electrical noise whilst 5G is in use but not as loud as you describe. Sounds like a fault with either the router or power adaptor. I'd see if Plusnet will replace it for you.

Re: Router has loud high pitched pulsing noise

Its from the router. Its a plusnet hub one. Yes im using the 5ghz band. Its not super loud but i can hear it over quiet parts of movies. It starts when noticeably when i actually use data. So ill hear it start making noise when i press play on netflix or start downloading
