Re: Welcome to the WLAN Standards/ Radio Technology Discussion

according to the FCC regs I believe that the 802.11 device cannot cause unwanted interference, although the closer one gets to the antenna the greater the risk of interference and effect to the human body.

I found this information on Cisco's site:

"The WLAN devices are safe when operated under normal operating conditions as stated in the user manuals. The power levels are below the power level of a typical microwave oven. The radio modules were tested in accordance with various recognized standards by independent test labs. The levels measured when the PCMCIA antenna was 1 cm away from the user was recorded at 10-12% of the maximum level allowed."
