Using the internet is awesome. We always want to be connected online to speed up our tasks. It’s very convenient to be able to use the internet anywhere in your home and business! But there’s something you should consider: to reduce your level of EMF radiation exposure at home, you may need to turn off your WiFi!
However surprising this sounds, it’s important for you to understand why. The Wi-Fi is convenient and fast, but WiFi emits dangerous EMF emissions. And safety should be a priority.
So instead of Wifi, use wired internet connections and you’d be less exposed to harmful radiation. In addition, you’d enjoy fast, secure, and reliable internet access.
If you’ve decided to go the way of wired internet access, you may want to seek the help of an expert. They will need access to your home so your internet can be run with an Ethernet cable.
But if you’re the type who likes to get things done yourself, or maybe you can’t afford the services of an expert, here’s a step by step guide that could help you.
Easy Guide to Setup your Wired Internet and Turn Off WiFi
First, Get the Right Tools
To set up your wired internet, first, get the equipment ready. If your internet provider hasn’t given you a modem (or/and a router), then you should get one. Just make sure your modem allows you to turn off WiFi.
Secondly, you need an Ethernet cable and a switch which would help you enjoy a wired connection on your devices. Then, depending on how many devices you want to connect to, just ensure your switch comes with many ports. And when getting your cables, make sure they’re shielded ones, so you can reduce your risk of EMF exposure.
Whether you plan to share cables with several devices or you want to make it one cable to one device, you’re on the right track.
Second, Plug in your Cables
Now that you have your equipment ready, here’s how to set up a wired internet connection. First, follow your service provider as instructed to set it up after plugging in your modem. Then, after connecting to the internet, plug in your Ethernet switch cable into your modem’s port. Then connect its end to the switch.
When the Ethernet switch is connected, run your cables to any part of your home you want internet access. You could pass the cables through the ceiling or the floor depending on your home structure. You could even tape it to the wall or make it run through the carpets and install a port in each room.
Time to Connect your devices and surf the net
With all cables properly installed in your selected places, plug in your desktop computers, laptops, TV, video game consoles, and any of your favorite devices as long as they have an Ethernet port. Though your cell phone is not on this list of devices you can connect this way, connecting the devices you can is reducing EMF exposure for your safety and is a top priority for you and your family.
How to Turn off WiFi on Router
Imagine the freedom of safety from EMF radiation after turning off WiFi from all your devices with one. Depending on your devices, you might have to connect to each device differently. Don’t worry. In case you don’t get it right, follow the manual instructions. And you’re good to go.
Final Thoughts on WiFi EMF Radiation
WiFi is good. But a hardwired internet is better. If anything, your safety and that of your loved ones is worth more than some convenience from using a wireless connection. So to guard against EMF emission in your home, turn off Wi-Fi. In places where that isn’t possible, you can look into WiFi router guards and turning off WiFi when not in use to dramatically reduce exposure for everyone in your home or business!
