Will my microwave oven or cordless phone interfere with my wireless network?
FAQ ID: 392 Product: WirelessUpdated:4/28/2005 1:29:10 PM
Microwave ovens and many cordless phones operate in the 2.4 GHz spectrum, the same radio spectrum used by TRENDnet 802.11g and 802.11b wireless networks. That means they can cause interference — but in most instances this will just slow down the wireless network connection; it won't stop transmission or break the connection.

To reduce interference, you can move a 2.4 GHz cordless phone away from your wireless equipped computer or base station. Interference usually happens with older microwave ovens. You can also try changing the channel on which your wireless network operates.
