We really prefer to reduce the number of electronics in the home as much as possible. While Stetzerizer Filters can help, it's always advised and preferred to also reduce and eliminate the sources as much as possible. I personally do not use any LED or CFL bulbs in my home, or dimmer switches. Despite having filters and also shielded wire everywhere, I still choose to eliminate these sources and stick with clean incandescent and energy-saving halogen lamps

Once you have logged-in, click on the Wireless tab. You will see Wireless physical interface wl1. It is set to "disabled" by us. Set this back to "mixed," and you will have the 5Ghz network back on. It was disabled to further reduce exposure, but can easily be re-enabled by following these steps.
This is a great question. We have used and seen numerous shielding products and contraptions designed for this purpose. The problem is that using such devices will bring very, very mixed results. Depending on the type of material, construction, layers, and holes/gaps (such as those required for wiring) - the results will be very mixed and unpredictable.
This is one of the reasons we really like our Low Emission WiFi Router
Rather than attempting to shield, we have changed the source. Rather than try to cover up or block, we have reduced those emissions to begin with. We have cut down on the radiation by approximately 99.8%
Plus, you have the ability to adjust it. You can increase or decrease the power of the router. So don't try to cover it up - eliminate the source :)
The shielded surge suppressors we sell start out as Belkin surge suppressors. We then heavily modify them by hand in our shop in Rockford, Illinois. We have been shipping the surge suppressors with "Light Almond" color cords for quite some time now. You can tell it is our EHS-Shield cord, because imprinted on the cord is the word "SHIELDED" It is also 8 foot in length. The standard Belkin cord is 15 feet, black, unshielded of course, and does not contain the word shielded on the cord.
So these are ways you can tell. There are a few other ways as well. Another great way is by testing the cord with a no-contact voltage sensor, or an actual electric field detector or meter. These devices will all show you that the cord is very well shielded and is not putting out detectable electric fields.
Thank you for your question. Is there anything else we can answer?
All consumer networking components use standard Ethernet (RJ-45) port. There is no exception to this. So it'll work :)
Yes, just keep all of the cords and the box in like-new condition please, and you can return it within 30 days per our standard return policy, and we will refund it minus our standard restocking, or you can exchange it for something else and avoid the restocking fee usually. We haven't had a single return on the routers yet though - I think you'll be very happy with it :D
Does the printer have a 3-prong power cord? If so, it is already grounded. Or if the printer is hooked up via USB to a desktop computer, it is also already grounded. If not, or if it is hooked to a laptop computer, you can use our USB Grounding Adapter to ground the printer.
It should work fine in the UK. The router's power supply supports all voltages. You would need an inexpensive little plug adapter. We have them here and can include in your order if you put it in your order notes. We would be happy to throw one of those in there for free. Thank you for taking the time to ask your question!
All Internet connections require a gateway/modem device and then a router. ISPs (Internet Service Providers) usually provide a combination modem/router unit where the two devices are built into one unit.
For cable Internet, it's best to buy a cable modem aftermarket. For DSL it *may* be more difficult to buy an aftermarket modem - we would have to do some more research into this. Sometimes you can keep the modem your ISP provided you, and disable all of the wireless from it so that it is completely quiet. ONLY do this if you have a radiofrequency (RF) meter to verify that the wireless has, in fact, been completely disabled.
Then you could simply plug our R7 router into that. It is just plug-and-play. The R7 router's wired gigabit Interface supports up to 1000 megabits or 1 gigabit speeds. The wireless supports high speed as well, far higher than your DSL service could ever dream of providing for you. So your DSL will be holding you back not the router, if that makes sense.
