Hello, I just installed my new AEBS dual band yesterday and I have both a dedicated 5 GHz N network and a 2.4 GHz B/G running. I have my DSL modem patched into the WAN port on the AEBS and a LaCie 2-Big NAS hooked into a LAN port. The first thing that I noticed caught me a little off guard. I noticed that the AEBS was making a very faint ticking noise as if something inside was turning on and off. I have had a few AirPort products in the past including the UFO style base station as well as the first generation of this new style AEBS that only allowed a single band. I have never heard any of these devices make noise of any kind. The thing that concerned me even more is that when I plugged another patch cable in to configure my AirPort Express the AEBS starting to make a very audible "sizzling" or "static" sound. I left the patch cable plugged into the AEBS and removed the other end from the Express but the noise was still present. The noise however does go away when the patch cable is completely removed from the AEBS. I have tried all LAN ports and have the same result. The only thing I could think of was maybe some kind of interference? The patch cable I have running to the LaCie is shielded but the one running from the AEBS to the DSL modem is not. Neither of these are producing any noise. Is this just a bad cable, or some sort of interference? I am a little leary and afraid this could be some sort of fire hazzard. Is anyone else experiencing any of these noises with their AEBS dual?
