Microwave Oven (MWO) is a potential source of interference to Wi-Fi Networks, operating within same frequency range. This experiment investigates different aspects of the effects of operation of microwave oven on Wi-Fi Network. It has been observed that the interference caused by microwave is most adverse when microwave is at same height as the transmitter and receiver and when it is closer to one of them.
