Default RangeMax router beeps

I have had a RangeMax router for about one year. Just recently the router started beeping. It lasts for a couple of minutes. However, network access does not seem to be affected either during or after the beeping.

Has anyone heard of this happening?

Hardware Version V2H1
Firmware Version V1.0.19_1.0.1NA

TIA

This is the first time I'm hearing about a router with a speaker or beeper - ever - are you sure it's the router that is beeping?

it might be some components are going bad. usually do not make beeping noise. Buzzing may be more appropriate

As soon as you hear the beeping noise disconnect power from the router just to be sure it is the source. There is nothing on the PCB that is designed to beep that I can see. Things that could emit a sound (but should not) would be transformers and ferrite coils, and as June said these would normally buzz, I would not describe the sound as a ‘beep’.
