Could the noise coming from my Predator Connect W6 router be coming from the fan?
The Predator Connect W6 router is a fanless router. This means that the router is not cooled with a fan (active cooling) but via thermal conductive metals/fins (passive cooling). Fans suck in dust and other debris, which can slow down the system or can even cause the system to fail due to a lack of air circulation. Removing its biggest weakness, the fan, makes the Predator Connect W6 router reliable and quiet.
Since the Predator Connect W6 does not have a fan, there should not be any noise coming from your router. If there is noise coming from your router, it might be a sign of an issue that could possibly cause damage to your Predator Connect W6. Therefore, if you are experiencing noise coming from your Predator Connect W6 router, contact Acer Support.
