Weren't there some ethernet cables that had lower speed capabilities than others? IIRC, a few years ago I had one that could only go up to 600 KB/sec or so.

Our WiFi Areal supports WiFi with speeds up to 1 Gbit/s in 5 GHz for devices that support the bgnac modes, but basically none of our devices do, so I disabled the high-speed WiFi for some less radiation.

Do you mean radiations like from nuclear bombs? If such high-speed wi-fi is that dangerous, then I think I'll stick to speeds I got right now :P. Our ISP offers 200 mbps for $130 a month and 940 mbps for $150 a month, but there's a catch for the giga plan: Speed is based on current traffic, so if you're browsing during busy periods, don't expect to get anywhere close to 940 mbps. That plan is more suitable for people who only get online late at night.

Need a plan for people that are always online  <_<

We've actually been talking about this in the IRC a couple of days ago >.> (Look for the words "windmill" and "leaf" in the logs of the past weeks)
The only things that I can tell for sure is that plants you grow on top of your wifi router grow slower than others (tested that myself once) and that some people can "feel" the  radiation from wifi (yep, thats sounds really super strange!! But my own dad can sometimes feel it so that's not just bulls*** or something). But how far wifi is actually dangerous for humen...? No idea  :thumbsup:

Indeed, it's true, but wired. I can feel 3G radiation.

The type of radiation often used in communications are usually far beyond infrared, so it contains a very low amount of energy. I don't think it would be very harmful. 'Feeling' radiation is something else, though.

I think it's weird to say feeling 3G radiation is wired, especially since the big point about 3G is to work wireless ;) <--Weird non-wired statement   :thumbsup:

True - but still it affects the growth of plants ;)
We should look for volunteers that'd allow us to attach wifi routers to the heads of their newborn babies and monitor their growth over the next few years :3
Also would need a second grup that would not be exposed to such radiation, maybe by wearing protective tinfoil-hats 24/7 :3

Maybe a strange way to get asked such a thing, but anyways: Are there any volunteers having newborn babies? :) :)

Funny thing is, that wearing a tinfoil hat is supposed to make the wearer be exposed to an even higher radiation.
I read that it actually acts more as an antenna than it actually shielding.

I've read before about being able to feel GSM waves. Appearantly they're pretty bad for you.

Thats because you use these fake ones!! It's their propaganda in the media that tells us every single day how to create your own tinfoil hat - but they actually don't work! In the contrary - they make it even easier for them to control our thoughts!!  :crazy: It's just as you said - these fake ones work like superantennas that are gonna enslave you again!! If you want to be free from their thought-control you got to use a grounded 3-layer tinfoil-hat with an inductive coil wrapped around it and stick an energy-neutralizing crystal on top of it!!  :crazy: :w00t:

I am bored...

Actually, putting a tinfoil hat on your wifi antenna would actually work and boost your wifi. Not so much on your head.

love these old movies where the cool guys always carry an ampty chips tin and use it to focus their wifi signal ;D

Is that true Juju? I really need to Google that lol. If it is then that makes me think that the buses in my city are filled with tinfoil near where the router or wi-fi dongle is placed, because they have by far the longest wi-fi signal I ever seen anywhere (I can connect within two blocks radius)

Haha yeah, back when I was living on your shore I could tell when there's a bus passing on my street just by checking the available wifi networks on my computer, and the signal was kinda strong I could connect long enough to get past the connect screen :P

But yeah, I dunno if it's really true but there's ways to boost your antenna by putting a can around it, or tinfoil. Would make sense as you would increase the length of the antenna this way.

just as you use those cheap fake mirrors for lamps it's said you can use tinfoil for a wifi antenna. I dont know for sure how far this is just bulls*** but I was once told this:
Quote from: potential bulls***you can think of the wifi signal just as of light except it's only reflected by metal and pases through other objects.
so you could use tinfoil to focus the signal just like in a flashlight on order to span a greater distance.
so for example if you dont need wifi on the ground or on the roof, add two parallel floors of tinfoil above and below the antenna and the ignal strength will be increased for any receivers nearby.

of cause the use of beamforming makes this trick useless ^^ (if it even works in teh first place) ^^

Yeah I think the antenna lenght thing might be a factor. After all, TVs with over the air signal used rabbit ear antennas and extending the ears gave better signal sometimes.
