Why is Xfinity WiFi Harming People?

Why is Xfinity WiFi Harming People?

Thus far in 2015, I have been contacted by multiple people who have reported being injured by the new Xfinity WiFi routers. One woman wrote that it felt like she was “being microwaved.” Others have reported headaches, insomnia, brain fog, burning sensations on their skin and heart arrhythmia.

In this article I explain likely reasons why people are experiencing symptoms in response to Xfinity and also provide some solutions to this problem.

First, what exactly is Xfinity WiFi?

Xfinity WiFi BoxXfinity is Comcast’s new system for delivering content. However, rather than just delivering your internet and cable, Comcast is using your new Xfinity router as a gateway into your “smart home” and to deliver WiFi service to anyone within a few hundred feet of your home. The plan is to turn their customers’ homes into public “hot spots” with the result that WiFi is nearly ubiquitous in our communities.

Comcast’s stated ambition is to take away some of Verizon’s or AT&T’s business as people will be able to use Xfinity WiFi rather than the cellular networks for their mobile data. This will also give the company much more personal data on its customers, which has become very profitable for companies.

This is a brilliant business idea – if you believe that microwave radiation is perfectly safe. However, for the rest of us, there is now another layer of microwave radiation in our lives and a “hot spot” right in the center of our homes.

What does Comcast say about Xfinity?

To be fair, I first want to share Comcast’s side of this story. The following promotional video shows why Comcast believes this system is wonderful because of all the connectivity it will provide to its customers. You can tell how pleased they are with their product when they say “Xfinity will enrich communities – just like trees and flowers.” My response to this is: Really? As you will see below, comparing WiFi to flowers and trees is the epitome of corporate greenwashing.

Xfinity WiFi Dangers Harming People

Why are people reacting to Xfinity WiFi?

Every person who has contacted me (independent of one another) states that they were fine with the old Comcast WiFi routers, but they quickly reacted to the new Xfinity WiFi systems. I see three primary reasons for this:

1.)  Unlike previous generations of WiFi routers, there are now at least two (possibly four) antennas within the Xfinity routers. One antenna is at the typical WiFi frequency of 2.4 GHz and now a second antenna emits microwave radiation at 5.0 GHz. There are also two channels within in each antenna – a private channel for your home and a public channel for any Comcast customer who is visiting or walking by. Simply put: more antennas and channels mean more microwave radiation exposure for people in the vicinity of the router.

Xfinity WiFi EMF Analysis

2.)  There is also evidence that the new Xfinity routers are more powerful than those of previous generations. Multiple EMF consultants have shared with me that when they measure these new routers, the readings are much higher than any consumer router they have ever measured previously. It could be that because Comcast wants to provide public access through your personal router, they have increased the power of the antennas in order to obtain the highest coverage area possible. This may be the only way their business plan of “ubiquitous WiFi” can work.

It is also possible that they have increased the power to the 5.0 GHz antenna because this frequency is more easily blocked by walls (and humans). Perhaps Comcast thinks they can fix the range issue simply by beefing up the power of this second antenna and hoped nobody would notice. I am still collecting information on power output of the Xfinity 5.0 GHz antennas. Please contact me with your router FCC ID# if you have Xfinity service.

3.)  The 5.0 GHz transmission from this new antenna is likely particularly harmful to human biology. Basically, a 5.0 GHz frequency has twice as many waves per unit time as the 2.4 GHz channel. Each of these waves (called the “carrier wave”) has pulsed-modulated frequencies within it (this is the “information content” that makes your phone work). The 5.0 GHz channel allows for much faster download speeds because it contains more packets of information content per unit of time (i.e. more pulsed-modulated frequencies).

What is the problem with this configuration? Well, the issue is that the research points to these pulsed-modulated frequencies as being the dangerous part of wireless technology. These “information content” pulse-modulated frequencies are likely interfering with fundamental biological processes occurring within the organs of your body – such as your brain. Thus, if the 5.0 GHz channel delivers twice as many pulsed-modulated frequencies as the 2.4 GHz channel, then it will be more harmful to our bodies.

If this all sounds complex, can we make a real world analogy?

In nature, waves (or frequencies) are typically smooth, rhythmic sine waves. This is true for light and energy waves coming from the sun or ocean waves hitting the beach.

Endless WiFi Waves

However, by analogy, let’s substitute the natural waves from the ocean for the new 5.0 GHz Xfinity WiFi.

In this case, the waves would be coming ashore twice as fast as normal. Now imagine some people (or corporations) intentionally filling the water with oil and garbage that washes ashore with each and every wave. This oil and garbage represent the “information content” riding on the carrier wave and it would quickly pollute the beach, making it a stinking, unlivable mess.

It is quite possible that the pulsed-modulated 2.4 and 5.0 GHz WiFi frequency cocktail that Comcast is now exposing its customers to is causing similar damage to our bodies.

Not everyone will feel it right away (in fact, most do not). However, this does not mean that in 5-10 years’ time a significant portion of exposed populations will not experience the exact same effects (or worse) as those who are currently affected. Scientists increasingly say this will happen, so it’s wise to start taking some basic precautions today.

So, what can you do? Here are some solutions when it comes to Xfinity WiFi:

1.)  For your own home, if Comcast is your only choice for internet service, you should be able to program your Xfinity router so that the WiFi component is off. Here are the basic directions which another EMF consultant, Oram Miller, was able to obtain directly from Comcast. You want to disable the NAT and set it to Bridge Mode by doing the following:

  • Go to LAN settings — NAT
  • Select Bridge, not “Router with NAT”
  • This disables all WiFi.
  • The router will then only recognize a hardwired LAN.
  • To only disable the public “hot spot” option, here are Comcast’s instructions.

However, please note there are some reports that when Comcast does a system wide reset (approximately once per month), the WiFi component is turned back on for all Xfinity routers. It would be prudent to own a basic RF meter to check this yourself every month or so. You will have to go through this process each time.

2.) If that sounds like a hassle, an easier route may be to purchase your own modem/router that integrates with Comcast. This will save you the $10/month rental fee for the Xfinity router. This article from the San Francisco Chronicle summarizes how to find the right equipment. From my research, I would purchase this Netgear modem/router combo because it allows for fast internet speeds and has a simple WiFi On/Off button that easily allows you to disable all wireless functions. To add free home phone service, I would use Ooma.

3.)  You can also request an older model Arris modem from Comcast. Comcast is aware of this problem (they are even being sued because of the public WiFi option) and another EMF consultant, Liz Menkes, told me that Comcast has the older Arris modems available at the local offices for people who request it. You should be able to easily un-program any WiFi component in these older models and run safe, secure Ethernet cables.

Router Guard Less EMF WiFi Reduction4.)  If you live in an apartment building or dense city, this issue is much more complex. You could have 4 to 8 of these powerful Xfinity routers within 50 feet of where you sleep (hence the insomnia complaints). Some people who have contacted me have had to move from their homes because of this. If moving isn’t an option, you could share this information with your neighbors and, considering the evidence, they may decide to turn off their Xfinity routers and use Ethernet cables. For other neighbors who want to keep their WiFi, you could purchase them a Router Guard, which is a partial Faraday Cage for the router. It will reduce the microwave radiation output by 90% and the distance of the field by approximately 50%. For a typical apartment, this is still much more than is needed for an excellent signal, yet the Router Guard will dramatically reduce the exposure within your living space. Having conversations with your neighbors and buying 5 or 6 router guards will likely be much less expensive than moving.

Xfinity WiFi Everywhere

“Xfinity – The Future of Awesome”?

Comcast’s tagline for this new system is “Xfinity – the future of awesome.” This may sound like a great marketing pitch, but everything is not awesome. In reality, this is another huge corporation taking advantage of virtually no safety regulations in order to maximize profits at the expense of human health and the environment. Over one million Xfinity systems have already been installed, with a total of eight million planned. This will add yet another layer of dangerous EMF pollution to our lives.

There is a silver lining in all of this: with each new technology – including cell towers, wireless “smart” meters and the coming “Internet of Things” – more and more people are waking up to this issue. I see this every day as people contact me, unfortunately, with their stories of being injured by EMF pollution.

Another silver lining is that other internet providers, at least for now, do not appear to be emulating Comcast’s business plan. AT&T’s Uverse does not have the “public hot spot” option or the additional antennas that Xfinity uses (perhaps because AT&T is busy expanding its network of cell towers).

Until the tide of public opinion shifts in the coming years and the world wakes up to the danger of pulsed-modulated wireless technologies, the best thing you can do is to protect your family and friends by limiting what you are exposed to. Hopefully this article will give you more insight into how to do this, especially when it comes to Xfinity WiFi.

Editor, Health Impact News

Electricity is a part of all of our lives today, and we seldom give much thought to it unless it is not there when we expect it to be.

Like many stories regarding diseases and potential cures that are not widely known, I stumbled upon this one due to a friend who had a health condition, cancer, and his search for what was causing it. He was not finding answers from the standard medical community and their treatments for cancer, which seldom, if ever, look for the underlying causes.

My friend is Amish, and he is part of a community in Wisconsin that raises healthy food that Tropical Traditions sells on the GrassfedTraditions.com website.

This Amish community lives “off the grid” and seldom uses electricity. But in my friend’s search for causes as to why he was struggling to overcome cancer, he contacted a local resident in their area of western Wisconsin who was an expert on the harmful effects of electricity. This person came to his farm, and determined that his farm had large concentrations of electrical current passing through it, something those in the power industry describe as “stray voltage.” With the help of this local electrician, he was able to install some some copper wiring as a “shield” around his living quarters. He reported:

Headaches, stomach aches, and inflammation which were common before are now much improved.”

So this intrigued me. How could a local “electrician” in rural Wisconsin have such knowledge, I wondered. I decided to look him up, and found that his name is Dave Stetzer. Here is Dave Stetzer’s bio, from his website:

Dave Stetzer has been an electrician by training, education and experience for over 30 years. He joined the United States Air Force in December 1970 and began his career in electricity when he attended electronics school at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi Mississippi from February through November 1971. At that time, Keesler AFB was known as the world’s #1 electronics school.

During this training Dave was given top-secret military clearance, as much of the electronic equipment he worked on was, and still remains, highly classified. Dave completed training as a ground radio communications electronics technician and was assigned to the 676 Radar Squadron, Antigo Air Force Station, Antigo, Wisconsin. There he diagnosed and repaired a variety of electronic equipment, including PC boards, Klystron tubes and integrated circuits, as well as highly classified military electronic equipment, employing among other things, spectrum analyzers, oscilloscopes, signal generators, and digital frequency counters.

In February 1972, Dave received an assignment to go to Vietnam and was sent to KY8-38 Crypto School at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas where his top-secret military clearance was upgraded to include crypto access. Upon completion of this training, Dave returned to the 676 Radar Squadron at Antigo Air Force Station pending his November port call to Vietnam; his assignment was subsequently changed due to the official ending of the Vietnam War in September 1972. Dave’s duties continued as before, with the additional tasks of diagnosing, maintaining, and repairing highly classified crypto electronic equipment. Upon completion of his tour of duty, Dave received an honorable discharge from the United States Air Force.

Dave-Stetzer

There is much literature in the alternative health field regarding the dangers of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from items such as cell phones, but Dave Stetzer explains that the hazards of electrical current generated by power companies are greater than most of us realize, and that electromagnetic pollution is not strictly a wireless device problem. Mr. Stetzer has been called as an expert witness in lawsuits against electrical power companies due to his vast expertise on this subject.

I seriously doubt there is anyone in the U.S. today more knowledgeable than Dave Setzer on this topic, so I had Health Impact News’ own health writer John Thomas investigate this very important topic that affects each one of us. Much of the research presented here is based on the years of knowledge accumulated by Dave Setzer. Much of how this “dirty electricity” affects our health is based on the research of Dr. Magda Havas, who will be introduced below.

High Frequency Voltage Transients in the Power Grid may be Causing Life Threatening Health Problems for You and Your Family

In New York City, Jodie Lane was walking her dog when she stepped on a metal plate in the sidewalk and was killed by electricity. [1]

This was not a one-in-a-billion occurrence. Ground current is pulsing through concrete sidewalks, metal grates in sidewalks, manhole covers, metal street light poles, fire hydrants, and even bus stop signs throughout North America.

In Seattle, Lisa McKibbin was walking her 68-pound German shorthaired pointer Sam through a neighborhood when the dog stepped on a metal plate by a lamppost and was electrocuted. Ms. McKibbin indicated that she thought her dog was having a heart attack or having a seizure. She said,

“I opened up his mouth, stuck my hand in his mouth and I received a jolt … I received a jolt of electricity in my hand.” [2]

In a Baltimore public park, 14-year-old Deanna Green was about to go to bat in a church softball game when she touched a metal safety fence. She was killed by 280 volts of electricity that had leaked out of the ground into the fence. [3]

The problem of ground current or stray voltage is so bad that warnings have been issued to residents of New York City, Toronto and other major cities. Pet owners are being warned to take precautions when they walk their animals on city sidewalks to avoid having their pets electrocuted. The problem of ground current is also a greater threat to young children, because of their smaller physical size.

The Today Show recently featured the problem of stray voltage

An important point to be aware of in this study is that Smart meters were aggressively rolled out starting in 2008.  The dirty electricity and higher radiation levels the public has been exposed since that date is the smoking gun and could be the reason the statistics sky rocketing.   It is no secret that one of the biological effects of exposure to RF/emf pollution will harm the neurological system in humans and animals.  This is important to pay attention to and only the beginning of what is to come if the public does not stand together.  Unfortunately, before the government agencies will act, there will have to be millions of unnecessary suffering and high death rates; even though they are aware of the dangers of this technology….Sandaura
