    anything that emits radio waves can potentially harm you.
    but unless its running around 15 watts give or take a few then it will never hurt you .
    well unless you eat it or sonthing (the router)
    microwave ovens are in the 2.4 ghz band and they are 500 - 1k watts so you tell me.

    people use cell phones all day and they ask the same question.

    dont stick your head in the microwave though it will not be good.

    there is a small potential that if you focus the waves at a point it may be powerful enough to after 100 years of repeated exposure hurt you .
    but then again you will be dead anyways.

    FYI i was reading some coverage about deathcon a hacking convention were they had a wifi shoot out in the desert. and they took regular routers with 3rd party firmware or something and shot it into the desert. and see how far they can go. but the point is that the guys how made this rige ran for their lives when they shot the radio waves into the desert.
