    Because the RF emissions from a running microwave just so happens to overlap into the 2.4 GHz carrier frequency that b/g/n WiFi runs on. This is also why other wireless devices like cordless phones, baby monitors, etc will also affect your WiFi network. The only solution is to try to change the operating channel of your wireless AP or move to 802.11a.

    It really depends on how your microwave is designed and the RF emissions patterns from it in relationship with the location of your AP and your wireless clients.

    In my home network, my microwave doesn't screw with my wireless network but it does mess with a wireless A/V extender I use on occasion.

    You'll have to experiment some with AP placement and channel selection to see if you can get around the microwave issue. If those options don't work, unfortunately, you'll have to move to 802.11a or roll the dice and see if a different model/brand microwave will make things better.
