Frequently asked questions


After installing the eco-wifi router, the wifi function in your existing internet modem needs to be switched off, to minimize unneccesary wifi radiation. You don’t need it anymore because the wifi function is taken over by the eco-wifi router.

We often receive questions about how to do this. Please understand that we cannot support all the different providers and modems. This is outside of our scope of influence. However remember that turning off the built-in wifi is always possible so just keep demanding your provider’s customer service to help you!

Alternatively you may search for a do-it-yourself manual on the internet by typing the provider name and/or the make and model of your internet modem. Usually the built-in wifi can be turned off in the settings menu of your internet modem, which can be reached through a web browser by typing in the correct address.

If your internet provider also operates a public wifi network through the customer’s modems, please make sure to also turn this public wifi network off! In some cases you need to do this on a separate web page of the internet provider with a personal login. You can check if your modem is not emitting any wifi anymore by holding your smartphone next to it and scanning for wifi networks. Make sure there is not a very strong wifi network on top of the list, with the name of the provider’s public network!

To achieve the maximum speed that your internet subscription supports, you need to choose the eco-wifi model that is at least as fast as that. The JRS eco-wifi 01A offers 30 Megabits per second (Mb/s), the 03 model offers 2x 100 Mb/s, consisting of 100 on the 2.4GHz network plus 100 on the 5GHz network, and the 04AC model offers 100+300 Mb/s.

The 03 and 04AC models are dual band, which means they emit on two frequencies: 2.4 and 5 Gigahertz. This allows for higher throughput speeds and for mitigating interference from neighbouring wifi routers. You may turn off one of these if you want. This can be done in the settings menu Basic -> Network.

The 01A model’s hardwired LAN ports have a maximum speed of 100 Mb/s while the 03 and 04AC models offer Gigabit speeds 1000Mb/s.

 

Yes, our eco-wifi routers are compatible with any provider and internet modem. You simply connect the eco-wifi to your internetmodem with the included network cable. This uses the standardized LAN connection that is available on any internet modem.

You need to retain your internet modem because it provides the conversion of the internet signal to ADSL, cable, fiber, satellite etc. depending on your internet provider.

If your internet modem has built-in wifi, you then need to turn off this built-in wifi in order to minimize radiation. You may call your provider’s customer service and ask them for help. On some modems you can simply turn off the wifi with a switch on your modem.

  • Adjust the channel bandwidth to 80 MHz in the Basic -> Network settings menu.
  • Set the router in switch mode, as explained in the manual from page 6, to avoid NAT bandwidth limiting.
  • Speeds up to 300 Mbps and higher should now be achievable on the 5GHz AC network.

Yes, the eco-wifi offers a scheduling option based on rules you can set. You can set the wifi to automatically turn off completely for example at night times.

You may override this by manually pushing the wifi on-/off- button (only on 03 and 04AC models). As soon as it is time to execute the next rule, the router will resume the program.

No. Download speed, connection quality and range is the same as for ordinary wifi routers.

The eco-wifi does not contain an ADSL, cable, or fiber modem. Your internet modem needs to remain and the eco-wifi router is connected to it with the included network cable.

If there is wifi built in to your internet modem you may contact your provider’s customer service and ask them for help turning off the built-in wifi inside the internet modem.

Could you explain me what you mean with “90% less radiation in standby”? The term standby is not very clear for me. Do you mean the router when no device is connected or do you mean the connected device without data transmission (idle)?

That’s an excellent question. In fact, even when the eco-wifi is in use, it emits less radiation than an ordinary router. The easiest way to understand this is as follows. A wifi router transmits two types of packets:

1) packets containing the name of the wifi network – transmitted all the time (in standby and during use)

2) data packets – only transmitted during use.

Type 2, the data, is only transmitted during usage, for example when loading a web page. In ordinary wifi routers, the largest problem is that the Type 1 packets are transmitted 10 times per second 24/7. The eco-wifi reduces this frequency to only once per second. Because the Type 1 packets are transmitted both during standby and during usage, the eco-wifi reduces the radiation both in standby mode and during usage. This fact is technically measurable. The review video below from ElectricSense.com demonstrates the difference on an Acoustimeter electrosmog measurement device. Turn on sound to hear the difference.

JRS Eco WiFi Router Emits 90% Less Radiation Compared To Normal Router

Yes, we ship worldwide. A shipping cost indicator is available on the cart page.

Transit time to the US is one week with standard shipping.

Yes, our routers are fully compatible with the voltage and power system of different countries (100-240 Volts, 50/60 Hertz). For some countries a plug adapter is needed. This is included for orders from the US, Canada, UK, and Australia. For other countries a plug adapter can be found on Ebay or Amazon for a few dollars.
