How close is too close ?

How close is too close when it comes to locating access point near users ?
Say you worked in a place where you also had lodging, and your emlpoyer put an access point in your room, about 2m from your bed.....
Thoughts please :>)
rubbing the antenna gainst your eye is probably bad. 2 meters is farther than my router is from my desk, and I'm completely norbal.
It depends on the power levels and the type/direction of the antenna.
If it's a Low powered SOHO router with dipoles, you're most likey fine. If it's high powered ,and directed at you , you should probably do more investigation.
I have a figure of 3m minimum distance for performance and health issues, which is a figure I have used in training courses but I am at a loss to actually find a guideline on it.
So, if memory serves me correct, there is a definite recommendation re the 3m limit, but I can't find any reference to it.
