Talk:List of 2.4 GHz radio use

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


I've created this webpage to move the section related to 2.4 GHz interference in the "Long Range Wi-Fi" article to its own article, whereby more useful information can be placed.

It needs a lot of tidying up to make it look nice, but I think it's a worthy article to be included in Wikipedia, since 2.4 GHz interference is referenced in most articles which refer to 2.4 GHz devices Sam, Mansfield, UK (talk) 23:42, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

The discussion seems to almost entirely revolve around interference between various other devices and Wi-Fi. Since this page is no longer specific to Wi-Fi it should consider other interactions - for instance, I don't have a wireless network, but whenever the microwave is on, it interferes quite badly with our (cordless) phone.

Sorry, I'm kind of new to editing, and don't know how one might go about flagging an article, but I believe that this article really needs more citations. The only reference at the time of this post is a link to someone's free website. Thanks (talk) 01:48, 6 October 2010 (UTC)Benji

Tone of page[edit]

Most of this article, in particular the Resolving interference section, seems to be written in a patronising and advising tone, without any reference to sources. I could possibly rewrite it, but the sources I chance across seem contentious. If I rewrite it, can anyone help me find reliable sources to the facts. If someone else could both source and write it, that'd be great too. -- Kknundy (talk) 08:39, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Article's Purpose?[edit]

After reviewing this article, I'm left wondering what the underlying purpose of it is. The current introduction states "This article details the different users of the 2.4 GHz band, how they cause interference to other users and how they are prone to interference from other users." Yet, every section heavily focuses on how other devices impact Wi-Fi. There's no section reviewing how Wi-Fi can cause problems for other devices, nor is there much review on how two different non-Wi-Fi devices may impact each other. The overall article seems as if it's trying to be a guide on how to resolve Wi-Fi interference, and Wikipedia is not guidebook. Does this article have a purpose other than being a guide, and if so, what is that purpose? Can we make it reflect the title and introduction?

The title implies interference with one use of the frequency. Change title/scope to be a list of the sources of radio at 2.4GHz, which can lead to an interference section. This could be a WP:SUMMARYSTYLE. The new title may need more work, regards Widefox; talk 18:39, 10 September 2015 (UTC)
