Loud Router

Hi there,

Today I just got a new router from xfinity (TG1682G) because my personal one was fried. After it took a while to set up, it is constantly making a loud buzzing or humming noise that almost sounds like a cricket? I don’t really know how to describe it but it’s pretty annoying. Is there anything I can do? Is this normal?

Thank you!

Replace it.  You might get the XB6 which is the latest Gateway.
