Wi-Fi – Protect Yourself from Too Much Radiation

While taking advantage of Tablet, Smartphone, Wi-Fi, we are exposed to constant electromagnetic fields. What can having radiation for us for long term effects, is still not out, therefore: less is sometimes more. With us you will find a few tips we you can reduce the Smartphone, Wi-Fi and co. steel load.

After Danish young people have found the harmful effects of Wi-Fi on plants in an experiment, many are wondering how you can protect against the Wi-Fi radiation, or whether it is necessary at all.

The Federal Office for radiation protection according to the previous limits sufficient according to the current scientific knowledge for smartphones and Wi-Fi router to us from health risks that are proven to protect. Long term effects could not however be excluded through Wi-Fi and co, as, for example, brain tumours, the Federal agency that with last safety.

Some prevention is therefore quite reasonable, therefore: it should not eternally long phone calls with the mobile and not constantly wear it on the body, because the electromagnetic fields that occur during a telephone conversation with smartphones in a body are stronger than the fields where it is exposed by adjacent cellular base stations. The use of head-sets is also not bad, also reduces the radiation.

As a general rule: If you have the choice between the use of landline phone and Smartphone, you should opt for the former. Reducing radiation exposure for children is especially important. You are still in development and can therefore vulnerable. In children, the phone calls with the Smartphone should be restricted as far as possible.

Modern Smartphones have the advantage that they often send in the UMTS standard, which is radiation-poorer than the GSM standard, the older models often use compared to older mobile phones. Still a tip when it comes to surfing the Smartphone: if possible, you should surf only over Wi-Fi network, because Wi-Fi transmit power is usually lower than in the mobile radio standard UMTS, LTE or GSM. >>

The current system used in homes around the world, the Wi-Fi (wireless fidelity) is efficient, but has its limitations. Who hasn’t anger with the constant crashes in wireless internet service when you are using the notebook or tablet?
If you could see the signs floating by your room, you would realize that the space is densely populated by Wi-Fi signals from routers and competing devices by the bands available.

Thinking in a more efficient way of conveying information, the Haas Group and the researchers at the University of Cambridge are already in the advanced stage of a project of 4 years. The project uses the famous ceiling fixtures, found in homes and other buildings, to provide high-speed internet to short distances.

The system has been called Li-Fi and can replace traditional Wi-Fi router: First, the data is transmitted to a LED light bulb – that could be the shining light in a room, for example. The lamp turns on and off very quickly, even billions of times per second. This oscillation is so fast that the human eye can’t perceive, giving the impression that the light is just on. Then, a receiver on a computer or mobile device — basically, a small camera that can see visible light – decodes this “blink” on data.

LED Light Bulbs can swing fast enough to transmit data about of 10 times faster than the traditional Wi-Fi networks. And that should improve with the advancement of technology Li-Fi because the light frequency is more efficient than radio waves.

New models of LED lighting can reach speeds of 10 Gb per second and transmit data over a distance of 10 metres. In the future, will be possible speeds between 15 Gb/s, that is, more than twice the speed of conventional Wi-Fi’s.

To know if they rob us of WiFi, have various forms ranging from the simplest to most other advanced. If we note for example the Internet browsing is too slow, it may be an indication are robbing us Internet and are taking advantage of our connection.

Although in the majority of cases people connect to our WiFi network, only seek a connection to the Internet in order to navigate for free, in some cases can be more dangerous for example by installing a “Sniffer” that can access your personal data such as:

  • User accounts: electronic mail, access to pages (facebook, Twitter,.. ))
  • Email access passwords or these pages

Once we know the risks of leaving our network vulnerable to other users must confirm that they have agreed to our network:

A slow connection speed

Otherwise who access our network in order to use our Internet connection and download information or network films, the first sign will be that our connection speed will decrease.

Flashing WAN led of the router

Another simple way to check it is turning off all computers, mobile phones, tablets, which are connected by cable or WiFi router. In this way the led of the Router WAN, may flash, but not so fast as you would if you have a computer connected to the Internet.

I.e. If we check the WAN led of the Router flashes at the same speed with all devices disconnected from the Router may be a sign some other equipment do not have off is connected to our Router.

Accessing the Router and checking connected clients

The surest way to confirm whether someone has connected is access to our Router and verify clients are connected.

Taking the example of TPLINK, access the address of our Router (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) and write the user name and password (appears at the bottom of the Router in a sticker)

Access: DHCP – > DHCP Client List

In this list we can see computers, mobile, tablets,… connected by cable or WiFi router.

In this way we can check user should be connected to our network to match the listing provides us with the Router. If we detect a suspicious address that we didn’t expect we can confirm have agreed to our network.

If you’ve already confirmed that someone has accessed your WiFi network and you need to protect yourself, I recommend you to read this article from our blog where you can see how to protect your network.
