      Re: Wireless and pacemakers

      I have never heard anything at all to do with this scenario, all wireless equipment has to meet stringent tests before we are allowed to use it.

      If you are in anyway concerned, then you could always turn the wireless off and hardwire your router to the PC. Any help needed give us a shout on here.

      all the old pacemakers are now obsolete [from 90-s onward they are shielded from interference [even a mobile phone placed next to it wont affect it] wireless in uk is licensed by government and is not allowed to interfere with any products that are life essential
