Now this might sound a bit on the silly side,well to some at least,but i have been thinking about these things called wireless routers and networking. With all these radio waves buzing about how safe are they,are they digitaly encoded with each one having it's own frequency and what sort of range do they have. I'm thinking on the lines of interference with one onother in blocks of flats or high desity housing. Over to you the ever helpful experts to help me sleep at night!

Wireless networks - at least the ones you're likely to find in high-density housing areas - have a very limited range, are unlikely to interfere with each other, and can be configured to prevent unauthorised use by people in neighbouring houses/flats.

If you live in or near a city, or a big urban conurbation, you will have transmissions from radio and TV stations, mobile phones, public and private services, and government communications systems passing through your body 24 hours a day, and (short of living in a lead-lined bunker) there's nothing you can do about it.

DEAR EDITOR
I DO UNDERSTAND YOUR SECOND PARAGRAPH AS I AM THE PROUD OWNER OF A AR5000A/A+3 WITH A SDU5600.WHAT I WAS ACTUALLY TRYING TO SAY WAS WHAT IF SOMEONE WAS CRUISING OROUND WITH ONE OF THESE GADGETS COULD THEY PICK UP AND USE THE INFO THAT WAS BEING TRANSMITTED,JUST A THOUGHT.

PS. I THINK THIS IS THE MOST IMFORMATIVE FORUM ON THE WHOLE WIDE WEB,THERE IS ALWAYS SOME KIND SOLE OUT THERE TO HELP THE LIKES OF MYSELF.
