Can I accomplish the same by adjusting the settings in an ordinary router?The JRS Eco 100 functionality, which automatically turns off the wifi signal completely in stand-by, is unique to the JRS Eco 100 operating system and is not available on ordinary routers.People sometimes think that by setting a "Hidden SSID" on a regular wifi router, they reduce the radiation. This is a misconception. With a 'packet sniffer' program like Wireshark you can determine that the router is still transmitting beacon packets, only the so-called 'SSID' field in these packets is set to zero. It doesn't reduce the router's radiation in any way.What about other settings? Often you can't adjust the transmitting power in ordinary routers or only in rough steps. The JRS Eco 100 firmware offers fine tuning of the transmission power with a step size of 1 milliwatt, which is not available in the regular Asus® firmware.
To what extent does an Eco router reduce my exposure to wifi radiation?Wifi is two-way traffic. Although the Eco router greatly reduces the radiation of your router during stand-by and partly during operation, it does not reduce the radiation of your wireless devices. For each piece of data sent from the wifi router, a confirmation is sent back by your device. Wifi radiation from the devices is very strong and you keep the device very close to your body. Especially in data-intensive applications such as video, the wifi radiation is very high. By working with a wired Internet connection, you can minimize your exposure to electromagnetic radiation.
