How To: Minimize Wireless Interference

Wireless network connections, also known as “WiFi” make it convenient for users to take advantage of their local network and Internet connection from various areas within their homes.  However, wireless slowdowns and dropouts can cause many headaches and nightmares. Many things in your home can interfere with your wireless network. These devices operate in the 2.4Ghz band, a highly crowded spectrum. To give you an example of how crowded let me list some devices that use 2.4Ghz.

  • Cordless Telephones.
  • Baby monitors.
  • Wireless security cameras.
  • Wireless keyboards and mice.
  • Nearby wireless networks.
  • Clear Internet Services.
  • Microwaves. (They don’t technically operate on 2.4Ghz, but can interfere.)
  • Bluetooth devices.
  • R/C Toys.
  • Some T.V. Remotes.
