Helix Modem/Router Making a Constant Humming Noise

   I have just switched to Helix Internet service since last week. I have notriced the Helix modem/router makes a constant humming sound. It isn't loud but since the room is always quiet, it is easily heard. It's annoying since it never ends and has a bit of high pitch into it. I am wondering if your modem/router also makes this noise or perhaps my device is faulty? I appreciate your repsonse.

 

Thank you.

Mine hums too, but I can't say it bothers me. You could try putting adhesive felt pads wherever it comes into contact with whatever it is sitting on, as wood furniture or floors will otherwise amplify the sound it's making.
