due to persistent headaches we have rented a little house that is off the grid (electricity, gas, internet, ..) This seems to help reduce the aches and we plan to spend more time there..
in order to keep in touch with the world, we will need to install an EMF free internet solution. There is 3G/4G coverage in that area so the idea was to install a mobile internet router with an external outdoor antenna fixed high in a tree 20-30m away from the living area.
I’ve been searching for hardware solutions but cannot find decent info nor anyone that can provide me with solutions, let alone understand the problem.. I’m sure there are simple solutions for this, ive been looking into the Netgear LTE modem 4G 2120 with sim card but I don’t know if the radiation (at the modem) ends when an antenna is being hooked or not… anyone better/other ideas?
many thanks in advance

Hi Veronique and welcome to the forum.
I can’t comment on the specific solution or hardware you are looking at but…. I have seen a good solution to the problem, similar to your idea. They had a satellite dish located some distance from the house. The cable from the dish ran into a standard modem/router, and computers were then connected via ethernet cables as normal, with wifi disabled. I don’t know if the signal from the dish came in via the telephone/ADSL socket or via an ethernet port. Your proposal sounds very similar, so I expect something like this setup should be possible. Perhaps someone else can comment on your 3G/4G solution.
