My husband is having an Infinity technician come out to increase the bandwidth/internet speed on our router from 50 MB to 500 MB. Will this increase the level of wireless radiation that we’re exposed to?

Hi Allie, welcome to the forum. I think this question has been asked before, and never received a satisfactory answer. It depends where wireless transmission is being used. If it’s wifi in the house then exposure could be affected. If it’s outside somewhere (bringing the signal to the house) then it might be less of an issue. I suppose that transmission times will be quicker, but the data rate per second will be higher. I’m afraid I’ve no idea if that is better or worse. Hopefully someone with more knowledge in this articular area will comment. To be certain what is happening you would need a meter.
Also there is information on the main site here about eliminating wifi or at least reducing its impact by changing settings in the router, or using a JRS eco-router.

So we just had our router updated from 50MB bandwidth to 500MB and I can feel the changed pressure in my skull/brain the most. I’m sensitive to wireless radiation…when we got our first wireless router in 2006 I remember feeling like there was a stealth weapon in the house. I didn’t connect the sensation with the router at first– it took at least several days or a couple of weeks even; I walked around the house and was able to quickly pinpoint the negative energy coming from our home office.

This is a very sad day for me. I work Online from home a lot and our router is in an office nook attached to our bedroom. I run an ethernet cable from it to my laptop, which I use on the opposite side of the room from the router. When my teens return to school in the fall I can disable the Wifi on the router while they’re at school. My husband does allow me to power the router off at night, but that’s often not til he/my kids go to bed, sometimes past midnight. At present I am worried most about my brain as that is where I’m feeling the “higher speed change” the most. I’m feeling more like I’m standing right next to the router, at least, even though I’m at least 20 feet away from it. Frown I may eventually consider moving into an apartment. Our internet speed was never really an issue and that makes this even a bit more frustrating for me.

Now I’m feeling effects in my ovaries and thyroid…
Just got back from walking around our small one-story home. Distance definitely helps but my gosh I can feel the strong, dangerous energy throughout our house. With 50 MB I’d rate the detectableness of the dangerous energy overall as a 3 (out of 10) Now I’d rate it a 9 at least. The difference from where I’m sitting at my laptop has actually gone from a 2 to a 12. Yikes. Let’s hope I can somehow get used to this…or find a better job so I can find my own place. Oddly enough I seem to feel more powerful negative effects when my laptop is connected via ethernet than when I unplug the ethernet cable from my laptop.

Peter, thank you for the welcome and helpful comments and information. I will try and figure out how to adjust the settings on my router, though I don’t think my husband will be open to making any adjustments. If only I had married someone who is at least as electrically cautious and/or sensitive as I am.

I should clarify that I feel more effects when my ethernet cable is hooked up then when I just unhook it (with WiFi still turned off on my laptop of course).

Hi Allie, regarding the ethernet cable effects – I have heard reports that some very sensitive people can be affected by radiation from the ethernet cables if they are not adequately screened. Make sure that your ethernet cables are top quality and fully screened – I think this is now Cat 6A, but there should be info on the main site here. Another possibility is that the internal circuitry in the actual computer, which manages the ethernet connection, could be giving off some kind of radiation. I’ve never heard of this being a problem, but it’s not impossible.

Regarding the router parameter changes, I can guarantee that no-one will notice any difference if they are done correctly. They do not affect performance once the connection to the router has been established. This might take a second instead of a few milliseconds. Parameters to look out for are Beacon interval/frequency (usually expressed in milliseconds – set it to the highest value available) and transmit power – set it to the lowest value which will still allow the connections to function. And put the router on a mains timer so that it will switch off overnight automatically, in case anyone forgets.

It is nearly always possible to eliminate wifi and use Powerline adapters. See
Tablets, even phones, can usually be connected over ethernet with the appropriate adapters. However, in your case this might not work because the adapters do produce radiation from the house wiring which affects some people (I think the video explains this) although this might be less disruptive than wifi.

There is also info on the main site and in various forum postings about things you can do which may reduce your own sensitivity. These include reducing stress, detoxification, dietary and herbal supplements (particularly anti-oxidants) and neurological retraining.
