RE: AO-40, 802.11 Wireless Ethernet Test

This is also my experience.

What's of some interest is the interference to video senders in the 2.4GHz
ISM band caused by 802.11 devices.

I can't help but feel that the increasing use (or over-use) of this global
ISM band will first see major complaints coming from the consumers when they
discover that these devices are incompatible.

I have yet to try interference from Bluetooth devices on my config - I have
a Bluetooth phone and laptop, but the YL has 'borrowed' the phone
semi-permanently so my tests are delayed. Interestingly my laptop has both
802.11 and Bluetooth OEM fitted, but it doesn't seem possible to run them
simultaneously - the software prevents it even though they're physically.
I've seen comments on ZDNet that this is due to an FCC dictate, but I do
wonder if this might be disinformation, and it's simply that the vendors
can't get them to work together.
