    TL-ANT2414A safety - mounted outdoor on a wooden wall of a sleeping room

    Model : TL-ANT2414A

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    I am considering mounting a TL-ANT2414A antenna out on the outer wooden wall of a sleeping room. The back side of the antenna itself would be at a distance of 2 meters form the bed. Is this safe when it comes to radiation? Thank you.

    Yes, but you signal will suck on the back side of the patch panel antenna in the other rooms through the walls, at 2.4ghz absorption of the signal will vary between different types of walls, brick is awfull, and 5.8ghz is worse. since its a residential home it wont be too bad. I have seen posts on here were the consumer would place omni directional antennas on the outside of a commercial structure and would expect results on the inside. According to RF exposure limits keep the the high gain antenna up and away from people. Since the router or AP is low level I would not worry about it. Cell phones emit more EIRP than your typical AP.

    So you're saying it is safe to sleep some 2 meters away from where this antenna is installed?

    sure, the power levels on your access point is too low to really worry about it. Some people stare into there microwave oven and it operates at the same frequency as wifi 2.4ghz and that microwave emits a lot more power than a access point. A microwave is shielded but it still leaks rf energy.
