A man explained:
I am about to replace my dial up Internet connection with a broadband one and wireless connectivity would seem preferable to wired via USB or Ethernet for many reasons.
However I have been wondering whether the wireless signal could in any way interfere with my wife’s digital aids. She has enough problems with them anyway, and additional interference would not be welcomed!
Hopefully my concern is unjustified, but if not, I would be very grateful for your comments.
First, I want to commend you for being so concerned about your wife’s hearing. Not all husbands are so understanding.
Now for the good news—I don’t think your wife will have any problems with wireless routers. My digital hearing aids don’t pick up a thing from my wireless routers. I think it would be highly unlikely for any hearing aids to pick up interference from wireless routers.
