Does anyone not use WiFi?
I want to setup my computer, laptop and home TV with a hard wired connection (instead of WiFi). The radiation coming out of my WiFi router is very high.

Anyone do a wired setup anymore? Or do you know of a WiFi router that doesn't emit so much radiation?

You do not need a router for the internet, stay tuned in the upcoming days while we put the internet business out of business.

You could do over your power line with like a powerline ethernet adapter. No need for wifi but good range.

At least turn the WiFi off at night for a better night's sleep.

I dont and I pull the wifi daughter board out of the modem, bridge it, disconnect all coax's and use a wired router.
My mobo has no wifi, no bluetooth, no remote bios, no tpm module, the power from the wall is filtered.
they can fuckoff and die.

I love the power line Ethernet. But remember everything on your side of the pole transformer or vault can share a unit. We have them all over the farm. Most metal pole barns will not let wifi or phone signals in.

Of course people do. A wired system dominates in every single way.

You just get a router and a switch with as many ports as you need and a bunch of CAT6 cable and connectors and off you go.

plan it out first.

Don´t use powerline.... its worse then WiFi. Each electrical wire in your home is turned into a radio transmitter due to the high-frequency transmission going through it...

PC is ethernet. Mobile on data. Kid's laptop mostly on hotspot or ethernet. I prefer to keep wifi off unless needed for some things. If you turn it off on the device, the wifi light turns off on the router. If that still means it's radiating me then I've wasted my efforts.

how would anything connect if it shut off when there's nothing connected


if you want it off
you have to log into the router admin config portal and turn it off / disable it

I use Ethernet connections from my router (VirginMedia, UK.)

I've tried turning-off the WiFi, but it won't let me do it.

Anyone know how to do this?

I switched my router to ethernet only years ago, and have slept much better ever since. I have read that our bodies perceive Wifi as light, and this interferes with melatonin production.

Also, ethernet is faster and more secure than Wifi. And you can have tons or mirrors in your apartment without worrying about blocked signal. In fact, I have purposely installed tons of mirrors on the exterior walls of my apartment in an effort to help block other people's Wifi from entering my apartment. This is no small feat, as I live in a densely populated neighborhood.

Thanks. I just checked, again.

The VirginMedia instructions are a bit misleading (on purpose?) and they "recommend" that you leave WiFi turned on, but I got it figured out.

WiFi now switched off. I'm quite happy with Ethernet-only.

Re: Does anyone not use WiFi?
I use wired Ethernet old school RJ-45 style.

It is faster in my opinion. Wifi and wired are trade offs. I have a lot of wireless in my area and the interference from others causes a lot of lag. If you have the ability and resources, use wired. In some scenarios, it can be a pain to use wired but it is always fast and reliable compared to wireless.
