Experiencing Interference?

Mar 26, 2010

Do you have a wireless network in your home or office? Do you sometimes find that it runs slowly, or not at all?

The problem could be interference.

Most wireless networks operate at a 2.4ghz frequency. Although this is a sufficient frequency for your wireless internet needs, it is also the same frequency that most cell phones, Blue Tooth devices, and other wireless devices utilize. If you are in an area where there could be a lot of wireless traffic, you could find that your connection will be slowed.

To combat this, developers have started to use a 5ghz frequency, that would be used exclusively for wireless internet connections. There would be no interference from other wireless devices. However, because the 5ghz frequency is so new and specific, it is difficult to find, and most internet providers are still cautious to upgrade.

Therefore, it is always important to remember that when using a normal wired connection to the internet, that you do not have to worry about other types of interference. The connection is secured through the cable and is sure to give you a fast and clean internet experience.
