    Booster vs. Network Extender- difference in radiation?

    I have Verizon Wireless (and FIOS). However my home is pretty much a wireless dead spot, so I'm deciding between a Signal booster vs. Extender.
    Question #1 - Outside of the house, I can get 2 bars - is that enough for a signal booser
    Question #2- We're very concerned about radiation exposure (basically have a son battling (unrelated) cancer and since there's not many years of data to go on = overall suspicion/fear of finding out later about issues (similar to how people found out years later that insulation w/Asbestos was not as safe as initially thought). With that said we do have a wifi router in the house (so we somewhat balance concerns with need). So my Q is - between these 2 options Signal Booster vs. Extender - is there any difference in the amount of ADDITIONAL radiation that would be produced?
    thx

    I can only speak to the Verizon Network Extender 2. On that device, while it will auto-configure when you set it up, there is a setting that allows you to change the power output of the device from 10mW to 100mW. So in theory, you could tweak it based on your needs/wants. My overall experience with Verizon Network Extenders (especially the 4G LTE model) has been positive.
