Wireless router

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is there any way to limit an how far I cast my wireless signal from my router? I only want to cast in about a 10 foot radius, basically in the size of one room.

What router? If the firmware allows it, you can lower the send/recieve power.

Depending on the firmware and the router, lowering the radio signal strength is possible. A different fix would be to put low power antennas on it (if possible) to reduce transmissions distance.
