POTOMAC, Md. (WUSA9) -- Some Montgomery County parents are worried about their children and exposure to radiation from wireless internet routers in schools.
At certain doses, microwave radiation, the type emitted from wireless technology, can be harmful.
Wireless routers are installed in ceilings of Montgomery County Public Schools classrooms. The numbers of routers in a given school can vary, but they range from a couple dozen routers to 100.
"These are not transmitters that would be in your home. It's much stronger. it can handle up to 200 laptops," Laura Simon, a parent said.
Several parents meet Tuesday night at Bells Mills Elementary to discuss their concerns about the routers. Some parents want to go back to hardwired systems.
