I recently had a problem with interference while connected to a wireless network. I identified a 2.4ghz phone as the source of the problem, and removing it fixed the symptoms.

Now they have started reocurring, even with the phone gone. Regularly my internet connection drops, stays out for a couple seconds, then starts back up. It's completely random, where sometimes it'll do this off and on every minute for an hour, or it'll stay good for a couple hours at a time.

I was wondering what other things could be causing this interference, or if it's another problem altogether?

Microwave ovens are another source, and even stuff that isn't 2.4ghz can blow away the tiny signal used for WiFi.
