    It would be similar to a cordless phone (non cell).

    Output from a cell phone can get up to 2W (occasionally more).

    By comparison the maximum output from most wireless network cards tends to be about 60mW, and the maximum permitted is 100mW, about 1/30 of the power of a cell phone.

    The danger zone (if it even exists, it hasn't actually been shown to be harmful) for cell phones is reckoned to be within about 30cm for young children, so the danger zone for a wireless network (if one exists) is almost negligible.
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    No, it's not dangerous at all!
