    Hi all,

    Do the WRT54G v4 routers make a small high pitched noise while powered on or should they be absolutely quiet? Mine seems to make a high pitched ring that I can hear only when the unit is 3 inches from my ear. I am concerneed that the unit is defective although the wireless works as expected. Firmware is Linksys v4.20.7.


    PS: For those of you who noticed, I posted the same question at wrt54g.net.

    Can anyone comment on their WRT54G v4 routers?

    I listened to a v2 router and three v3 routers and only one v3 had a barely perceptible hi pitched ring to it but it was nothing like mine. Interestingly, the sound modulates as traffic goes through the device. The sound seems to come from the transmitter but I cannot be sure. Is this normal operation for this version of router? My device is only 2 weeks old, fresh out of an unopened box.
