Your Microwave is Killing your Wi-Fi Connectivity
‘There are a variety of household devices and electronics that can interfere with your Wi-Fi signal, but most don’t have the ability to do so quick so spectacularly as a microwave oven. Read on as we explore how a microwave can wreak havoc on your wireless network.
‘802.11 (b/g/n) typically operates on the 2.4 GHz band. This is conveniently the same/very close to the band that your microwave oven emits. It’s also an ISM band, which can be freely used at low power without licence – it was originally supposed to be used for non-communication purposes, but the lack of a licence requirement makes it very attractive.
‘Most microwave ovens tend to be very well shielded and will not emit enough radiation[*] to interfere with wireless communications. It is possible that your unit has a damaged shield. You could look into replacing it.
‘A better thing to do would be to upgrade your wireless networking equipment and devices (note that many, especially older, devices are 2.4 GHz only) to be 5 GHz compatible (used with 802.11 a/n)…’

Vigilance and knowledge can help find and solve problems before they turn a PC into a paperweight. Here’s the issues to look for – and how to fix them before they cause any harm…’
The Mystery of France’s Greatest Diamond Heist
All it took was just brute force and about sixty seconds. How can one thief do that!?
‘The terrace doors of the opulent Intercontinental Carlton Cannes hotel on the French Riviera were supposed to be locked.
‘But before lunchtime on the last Sunday of July, a thief-whose face was obscured with a bandanna and a motorcycle helmet-managed to slip through them and directly into an exhibition room loaded with millions of dollars worth of Leviev diamonds, “the world’s most extraordinary.” Armed with an automatic pistol and an uncanny familiarity with the setting, the mystery bandit began his heist.
‘”He was professional and very rapid,” Philippe Vique, a deputy prosecutor for the region based in the nearby town of Grasse, told the New York Times a day later. Vique told The Atlantic he was no longer divulging details about the investigation, which is ongoing…’
