Can a cell phone interfere with my connection to the wireless network?
A cell phone probably won't interrupt your connection, however cordless phones and microwave ovens operate within the frequency range of the network (2.4 GHz and up) and it is possible for them to cause interference with the connection. Please email support for more information.
