WGR14v6 makes high pitch sound...

Hi,

My router as of late makes as very high pitch sound, both with wireless set on and off.

It does still work though...I have some problems with connectivy (both WLAN, WAN and LAN), but that also was before it started maken noise..

A hardware problem I guess. Is this a known issue? Can I expect it to die soon..? Is still safe to use?

Strange???

How old is this router?

Noise and connectivity issues apart, I shouldn't think it would be unsafe unless it is heating up overly and could be a possible fire hazard.

It certainly sounds like a hardware problem. Left to me, I'd be thinking seriously of getting a new router. Smiley Wink

Capacitor inside the router is going bad.
