I just got UVerse service activated on 12/6.I have 3 questions about the 3600HGV:1. does it have a fan inside of it? I swear I hear a humming starting up and stopping from it.2. I shut down my computer at night when I go to sleep and I unplug the tower.But the 3600HGV stays on.Sometime I hear it click click click.What's it doing?3. There is a power button on the front of it but when I push it, it doesn't turn off.I was thinking of turning it off when I shut down my computer at night.Too much trouble for me to get underneath the desk and reach behind it to unplug the power plug.Thanks.
I don't know about the 1st/2nd questions but for #3 that's not a power button. That "Power Button" is a WPS button from what I've heard. WPS is off by default in the wireless settings.
I don't hear any fan like noises from mine. Nor do I hear the clicking sounds. Is your's losing sync and reconnecting to the network? Mine is rock solid. Big and ugly, but very quiet!!
Oh and I just remembered. I didn't have any fan noises on my 3800 which is somewhat similar. Only time I heard a click on it was when I rebooted it and it was syncing back.
1. no2. could be a faulty capacitor making noise. not sure how to interpret the click click thing. Capacitor squeal is typically high pitched and low-medium volume.3. WPS PBC button. Although even if you enable WPS, the button still doesn't work right in my experience. Firmware issue I guess.
