Hello! (No joke Laughing)

I was thinking of what settings we can use on a DD-WRT wifi router to lower EMF exposure.

I know this company is using OpenWRT to make it.

So the interesting part is if someone can recommend or fill this thread with recommendations and settings to use.

This is what i could find online:
1. Scheduling the router to turn off wi-fi automatically (example when we sleep)

2. Decreasing the wi-fi transmission power.

3. Decreasing the "pulse" interval
(i dont know whow to do this)
Quote:
"Beacon Interval" can be set to 1000 or 2000ms, so in standby, it will only emit one pulse per second or per two seconds, instead of 10 pulses per second which is the default. This alone reduces radiation by 90%+ when in standby.


4. Your ideas, please this is a serious thread.

Thank you!!

These posts are bat shit crazy. Even if you turn off your wifi, you're still being bathed in "radiation" from all kinds of other sources. Hell your microwave oven probably leaks more "radiation" than a typical home AP.

If you really want to be all tin foil hat about it, shove a 50ohm resistor rated for at least a watt between the center pin and ground shield of the antenna jacks. This will act as a "dummy load"

Then again if you actually understood anything about the "radiation" coming out of a radio, you would have already known how to put a dummy load on it.

The microwave oven is typically minute(s) timeframe.

Probably, the thing to do is take aim at the battery saving techniques and settings for phones and tablets. Mainly relevant to 2.4ghz wifi, just make the mobile batteries last longer, then there's about 6x Less wifi congestion/pollution, and the job is done. There are some really relevant router settings for that purpose.

Long duration of 2.4ghz at point blank range can cause a mild optic nerve irritation headache; so I think that the #1 fix is: Move it off the desk.
Simple mistake meets easy fix.

A more rare case is a combination of smart-house with many 2.4ghz clients and a router with the wake-locks problem. However, fixing the really bad performance probably will fix that other problem too.
