As our family continues to reduce our use of Wi-Fi in the home, we have now connected our favorite devices to the Ethernet. Here’s how!
Why reduce wireless technology?
I have become increasingly aware of the overlooked science that shows a clear connection between health and wireless technology. The high frequencies utilized by cellular phones, cordless phones, baby monitors, and smart meters create an unnatural stress on the body.
After investing in a Cornet Electrosmog Meter, I was able to see for myself the dramatic difference in emitted frequencies between the wireless vs. wired status in the house.
Transitioning from wireless to wired has been a year-long process. Our most recent success has been grounding our iPad, iPod, and iPhone. With a little ingenuity and a few supplies, you’ll be able to enjoy your Apple devices without the added burden of wireless frequencies.
(For Android devices the BobjGear USB adaptor may do the trick. Find it here. You may also need a USB-OTG cable which changes your mini-USB port into a full-size USB port. Find it here. We have Apple devices so I have not experimented with this, but these products should help get you started.)
Required Accessories for Most Apple Devices
- Lightning to USB Camera Adaptor – like this
- USB Ethernet Adaptor – like this
- Powered USB 2.0 Hub – like this (*Make sure the hub is powered.)
- Ethernet Cable – like this
*You need a powered USB hub because the USB Ethernet Adaptor needs more power than the Lightning Adaptor Cable provides. You’ll get a notice on your device saying it cannot power the adaptor. When you see this notice, press OK.
Directions for Connecting Your Device to the Ethernet
1. Plug in power supply cable to the back of the hub. (This comes with the powered hub.)
2. Plug in USB Ethernet Adaptor to the front of the box.
3. Plug in the black USB cable into the back of the box. (This comes with the powered hub.)
4. Plug in the Lightning USB Camera Adaptor to the USB cable.
5. Plug in the Lightning USB Camera Adaptor to your device.
6. With your device in airplane mode, connect all of the above. You will get a notice on your device saying it cannot power the adaptor. When you see this notice, disregard it and press OK. If you’re not getting the Internet, refresh the page or open a new window.
This video shows exactly how to have a wired connection for your iPad and/or iPod. *Be sure to disable the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth functions once you have connected to the Ethernet. Otherwise, the device will continue to emit these fields.
