Interference Issues: Wi-Fi vs. Microwave Ovens

Microwave ovens and Wi-Fi hardware both emit signals in the same general vicinity of 2.4GHz. In the case of Wi-Fi, it uses those signals to transmit data. In the case of a microwave, it uses those same waves to cook food. Ideally, those waves should be contained entirely within the microwave oven, but invariably some seep out, because microwaves emit those waves at such an incredibly high power. The result: Even though the leak level is very small, it’s enough to garble sensitive network equipment, and wireless networks get confused by the extra (gibberish) traffic on the 2.4GHz band. The result is that they either slow down or drop your signal altogether.

There’s a lot you can do to help things here.
