I received the ASUS RT-N65R Dual Band Wireless N750 Gigabit Router from Best Buy today, set everything up, and I am noticing a high pitched noise almost like a spinning hard drive only when data is being sent through the router. Is this normal?
There could be a faulty capacitor in it or some other part defective for it to be emitting a noise, it should be silent and does not have a hard drive in it. I would call Best Buy support and maybe RMA it for another one. Something that is making a nooise that's supposed to be silent is not a good sign , you may just have a defective one and when you get the new one you'll see the difference.
