More Bars

amazed and scared.

i have my wifi router in my the bottom floor room, with the door closed. i get only one bar on the 2nd floor, understandable, with my linksys. i got my new netgear and i now get 4 to full 5 bars which is great, but all that wireless power it takes to get up here scares me. should i lower the power and live with less signal? almost makes me think i should go wired only. won't help with my neighbors APs i can see though.

I say you forget about it. Don't bother turning down the power, but just be prepared for your head to grow three folds like the "grey" aliens.

The point is even if you turned your power down, everyone else is still using their technology at full blast. You are going to be affected by the strong router signal, cell phone signal, HDTV signal, etc. no matter what. It doesn't matter what you do. Unless you can get everyone to stop using these wireless devices, you might as well jump on the bandwagon.

One more thing you can do to get out of this situation . . . move to rural area of Colorado, Wisconsin, Montana, or somewhere like that.
