Is it safe to sleep near a wireless router?
It is safe to sleep next to a wireless router as it produces radio waves that, unlike X-rays or gamma rays, do not break chemical bonds or cause ionisation in humans. These waves also deteriorate rapidly, losing their strength as they travel away from the router.
How much radiation does a WiFi router give off?
But these systems generally emit at a very low power — typically about 0.1 Watt emitted from both the computer antenna and the router antenna.
Are WiFi waves harmful?
However, the non-ionising wavelengths that are longer than light tend not to be dangerous. These include infra-red rays, microwaves and radio waves. At 2.45GHz, Wi-Fi comes in the microwave band along with baby monitors and mobile phones. All we can say is that there is no known risk from Wi-Fi.
Are routers dangerous to your health?
People claim that Wi-Fi routers keep them awake at night, cause cancer, cause hyperactivity in children, and all manner of unsupported and nonsensical claims.
