Identify the source of wireless interference
Posted on 2009-04-22
I am trying to identify the source of wireless interference within my home. I know that there is something causing an issue near my kitchen and have been trying to identify it for some time.
The kitchen is located in an extension on a traditional stone built home in the UK. I first realised that I had an issue with my Television as I tried to use wireless video extenders. Whilst the transmitter and receiver are only around 3 or 4 metres apart, more times than not, the picture flickers and the sound has a 'heartbeat' noise. On some occasions I will not have any issue with the tv.
When using the laptop on wireless from within the extension, I can be working away with a 70% signal and then it will drop out. After waiting a few minutes, the signal will return.
I have tried the following to try identify the issue
- Switched off all electrical items in the kitchen
- Changed the operating frequency of my router, DECT phone and wireless TV transmitters
Is there some way that I can determine what is causing my issue?
