WiFi is currently the most common method of connection to the internet. Wireless “hot spots” lurk everywhere…coffee shops, schools, hotels, and even throughout entire cities! WiFi is widely used because of its convenience. There are no wires, access is easy, and it allows multiple connections.
So what’s the problem? With WiFi connection comes continuous pulsating microwave radiation that can go directly through the walls in your home, even when computers are not being used.WiFi uses microwave radiation at two different frequencies, 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz. The 2.4 GHz frequency is similar to that used in a microwave oven. People who use WiFi wireless routers inside their homes are simply bathing themselves in high-intensity microwave energy fields, 24 hours per day.
How do you avoid this radiation? You can switch to network cables (Ethernet), and run the cables to the rooms requiring internet access. The same applies when using a laptop, or notebook/netbook.
If you are not able to hardwire your house, you might use power-line networking. It is not the safest alternative, but it is better than WiFi, since the signal is going through power-lines, not the air.
Those who insist on using their wireless internet should turn on the router only during the time it is being used, then shut it off immediately when they’re done. Make sure the router is as far away from your living and sleeping areas as possible. It is important that the wireless router be turned off at night to ensure an undisturbed, good night’s sleep for the whole family. The best way to do this is to unplug the power cord from the unit, which guarantees it is not transmitting. In the morning, simply plug it back in and wait a few minutes to power up. A power strip can also be used to shut off the power to the router.
By the way, just because you plug your Ethernet cable into the modem does not ensure that you are no longer receiving wireless signals. If it is a wireless modem, you may have to go online to your service provider and disable it from their site. To check if the modem is off, move your computer to the wireless mode and see if you get a signal.
Go ahead and try going wired. You may feel the difference in a few days or possibly immediately!
