Re: How can you reduce router wireless signal strength?

Some routers have a radio transmit power setting.  The R7000 has such as a setting.  Other Netgear models may also have it.

 

Another option is to load 3rd party firmware, such as DD-WRT, Tomato and others.  They should all have radio power settings.  Not all routers support 3rd party firmware.  Check the respective firmware websites for details about supported models.
