Some microwave ovens, those with defective shielding, will interfere with 2.4 G wifi. The defect can be as simple as a dirty or defective gasket around the door. There are other home appliances that use the same band, too, which is why some of us far prefer the 5 g band.

My 5.8 GHz Uniden cordless phone system uses the same frequencies as the upper 5.8Ghz WiFi channels, so they had interference between the each other, both ways, until I set my WiFi router to use the lower WiFi channels.

I still have the 5.8GHz phone system connected, for now, but we mainly use a new Panasonic DECT phone system, which uses entirely different frequencies (1.9Ghz) from WiFi, so no interference.
