Question about ParkerVision SIGNALMAX WR1500 (884181000031) Router
This question should be a piece of cake for someone who's a little bit more tech savvy than I am.
I have a ParkerVision WR1500 router that sits about 3 feet away from me. I don't need the wireless part of it...since I only use it to network 3 nearby computers via Ethernet cables.
I know this ****** is one high-powered router...blasting signals up to a mile away. Since I work right by the router all day...I'm not too fond of the idea of it blasting radio waves into my brain.
I've gone into the control panel and unchecked "Enable Wireless LAN" box...so it shouldn't be transmitting anything.
Here's my question...
When I unchecked that box and "turned off" the Wireless LAN option...have I TOTALLY DISABLED any radio waves coming from this router?
Or...is it still blasting out radio waves...just with no information or identification going forth?
Call me paranoid...I just don't want to be sitting here all day...having my brain cells "cooked" by radiation from a ultra-powerful router.
Like I said...this question is probably a piece of cake for someone with a little bit more tech savvy than me.
Thanks in advance for any help!
The ParkerVision wireless products achieve their higher range by more efficient processing of the received signal. There is an FCC maximum power limit that all wireless products must honor. The ParkerVision router does not radiate any more power than any other 802.11b wireless router.

The unit is made up of two boards. the main board is the router, on the underside is the wireless board. you can remove the wireless board and the router will still function

It should, well to make sure that it isn't there's an LED indicator on your router that say's wireless or WLAN, since you've unchecked the feature on the router that say's Enable WLAN it should only work as a wired router and would not transmit or broacast any signal.
hope this answers your question regarding the router's wireless trasnmission.
