      Help sky router is too powerful, wireless antenae ???

      I am uber sensitive to wireless, blue tooth, unable to use
      iphone, tv, satellite dish etc..

      Connected today to Sky through router using intranet cable.

      Felt very ill ill, same sympts as if using iphones.

      Is it possible to weaken or disable any type of enhanced wireless
      feature, and could this router have been configured to act as small
      anteane to enable and strenghten wirelss connection for phone users?

      Thank you

      As simply as possible no!

      You would need to disable the wifi in the device settings and the use an alternative device for your wifi.

      If a custom firmware was released then maybe, but otherwise no.

      I take it that you do not use the devices that you have mentioned because they make you ill so I would think that this will, probably, be the case using a wireless connection on your router. the only way would be to do what you are already doing and turn off the wireless in your router and use a wired connection.

      If you do not use wireless then as Pete says, disable the wireless on the router. To do this enter the router settings and click Wireless on the top menu bar. Scroll down to Wireless Access Point and untick Enable wireless access point.

      If you must have the wireless enabled, try changing the Mode to 54g Performance. This will reduce the wireless output but will also make the connection slower.
