Items That Can Cause Interference with AirPort
The farther away the interference source, the less likely it is to cause a problem.
The following can interfere with AirPort communication:
Â Microwave ovens
Â Direct Satellite Service (DSS) radio frequency leakage
Tips and Troubleshooting
Â The original coaxial cable that came with certain types of satellite dishes. Contact the
device manufacturer and obtain newer cables.
Â Certain electrical devices such as power lines, electrical railroad tracks, and power
Â Cordless telephones that operate in the 2.4 or 5 GHz range. If you have problems
with your phone or AirPort communication, change the channel your base station or
Time Capsule uses, or change the channel your phone uses.
Â Nearby base stations using adjacent channels. For example, if base station A is set to
channel 1, base station B should be set to channel 6 or 11.
