Does the modem make any noise?

Go to solution

Hi all

 

Getting infinity soon and I'm thinking about where to site the modem.

The easiest option is quite near my head in the bedroom!

 

Does the modem hum/buzz etc?

 

Thanks

No but I've heard locating it near your feet improves download by 2 mb

I actually think they are deaf as well as mute, every time I've shouted at it, its just sat there blinking at me ignoring me.

Mine is in the hallway, outside my bedroom.

 

Most nights I sleep with the Bedroom door open, between the HH3, OR Modem and my Netgear switch it is like the Blackpool illuminations out there. Never need to turn lights on to find the way to the bathroom.

 

But all 3 are fanless, and humless, no noise just lots of lights.

 

Even with the bedroom door shut, its not much darker; due to shared light (glass) above the door.

All wrong...its the "cats whisker" that improves speed,it got us radio when I was a kid.:)

So get one cat,pull a whisker...bandage scratches..and bind whisker round hub lead.:)

And stick tape over the hub lights.LOL.

The hub don`t make any niose..but the cat will!.

 

BTW here a trick to double your speeds [seen this on a serious site but lost the link].

Take a spare cat5 cable and wind one end around the excisting ethernet cable using 3 turns close to the port [LAN1].

Then do the same at the PC end,then test your speeds.

The guy on the site actually showed that working.
