Ethernet and laptops ?

dteshome85@gmail.com
Anyone get some symptoms from ethernet use?

I am finding its better than wifi in that I can tolerate more screen time.I notice if I use it for several hours it creates weird sensations in the brain and fatigue.Especially at night.Perhapa this the ELF part more so than the RF.

I notice that when I am watching a video on somebody on YouTube I retain only a small percent of the information.It can be overstimulating at times

Same thing with Television

I remember when I was a kid I used to watch lots of cartoons growing up for hours on end

Now in my 30s seems like its doing strange things to the brain

I use a laptop, but I haven't felt the need to use this kind of setup since I keep the laptop away from me and use external peripherals. Just too much ELF to deal with if you're near the actual computer.

Both Sailplane and Casper converted their laptops to fiber optic ethernet.  You can find out which media converters they used by searching the forum here.  I tried to do it with an HTB-1100S media converter, and it was a huge improvement until it stopped working a few days after I installed it. The replacement I bought failed in a few days also.  Casper had much better luck with a similar device called an HTB-3300.

Right now I'm testing some Allied Telesyn MC102 and MC102XL media converters, but they didn't work with the one-plug ("simplex") SC-UPC fiber cable I have and so I need to wait for a duplex cable I ordered to arrive.  What I can say now is that they are MUCH better built than the HTB-1100S but also have more electronics inside, including what might be a switching power supply.

They run from 12V DC power and they require the same oddball 2.5x5.5mm power plug that the HTB-1100S does.

I've had zero luck with any of the fiber media converter's I've tried.

I bought a pair of MC102XL media converters, a brand new cable and a brand new fiber port cleaner, and plugged the cables in mere seconds after cleaning the ports... and no link.

You guys are advanced with this converter stuff. I don't know much about conversions or fiber optics. My airbnb host here does have a fiber optic though. There is a long blue cable that runs into my laptop with an ethernet adapter it is drilled in through the walls.

Its a nice little tiny home in a unit of 3 other homes and has wifi capabilities for other guests though right now it is vacanFairly compact but some space about 20 feet to the other homes depending where you are

About 3 or 4 networks that have the same network name with 2.4 version and 5. I put mine on airplane mode and do the ethernet. I know distance is important when it comes to emf.

Thank You Guys

I used to get sick from the ethernet cable. When I was at my most sensitive, it emitted enough EFs that it would make me sick. I was also super sensitive to MFs and couldn't use my stove to cook...or anything that required me to be around MFs for more than couple of minutes.

fiber is better than ethernetcables which is preferable to wifi ( at least for almost all es-folks, possible exceptions simply prove this rule ).
ethernetcables may carry also pollution from the modem into the pc into the monitor and mouse plus keyboard.
modems with wifi disabled are still sources of emfs, although much less strong of course.
grounding a modem ( e.g. via usb-outlet, connect outside plug ) can reduce fields towards a landline phone connected to it.
regarding frequencies in the lower MHz range ethernetcables can be shielded in areas where one spends a lot of time.
cat-7 cables are an idea, running the cables through metal pipes shields much better.
steel pipes could increase electrical fields ( unless grounded ), aluminium tape is a bit less effective and can get cracks.
aluminium pipes are cheap and usually abundantly available in the trash which is my favourite place to get stuff.
electric stoves emit electric and magnetic fields, by far the worst is certainly "inductive" cooking, by all means to be avoided.
some people may argue that all heating up of food is a crime, but that is a whole other topic.
