The JRS Eco 100 Wifi router: 100% radiation-free in stand-by

An ordinary wifi router broadcasts beacon signals 24 hours a day, 10 times a second. This generates a considerable amount of radiation in the home, clearly measurable. The unique JRS® Eco 100 Wifi-router automatically switches to Full Eco stand-by mode when no wifi-devices are connected, which reduces the radiation to zero. When you reconnect to the wifi, the JRS Eco 100 router automatically switches on again.

The first generation of JRS Eco-wifi routers already significantly reduced the amount of electrosmog by reducing the pulse frequency of the beacon signals by a factor of 10. See Eco-wifi: 90% reduced pulse rate. The JRS Eco 100 technology takes it one step further.

When you first install your JRS Eco 100 router, it will go into learning mode so you can easily connect all of your wifi-devices. The router automatically keeps a list of devices you have connected to it. Then it automatically switches to Full Eco mode, in which the JRS Eco 100 router is fully radiation-free in stand-by.

As soon as the JRS Eco 100 router receives a connection request from a wireless device in the router’s registration list, and only then, the router will switch on the wifi signal again. Your wireless device will send such a connection request if you enable the wifi or open the list of available networks.

The globally unique JRS Eco 100 technology is compatible with all brands and models of wireless devices: Android®, Apple®, Windows® etc. and you do not lose any wifi speed, range or stability. The JRS Eco 100 also offers a reduced beacon signal pulse rate, just like the previous generation JRS Eco wifi, even during use.

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 easily determine that the router is still transmitting beacon packets, only the 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 an improvement on 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.
