what are common interferrence issues with wireless connections?

aside from the obvious like walls and distance from the access point.

i ask because.....i can be like 20 feet from the access point and at times the signal will spontaenously drop to 50% when i havent even moved the machine. but then it comes right back up to 100%.

just wondering if there are any appliances in paticular that will give wireless a hard time or not.

Some cordless phones.

Maybe your house has been marked and on the map already as a hot spot for wireless "freeloaders". See any cars outside your place!

microwaves can do it if the access point is like RIGHT next to them

Florescent light fixtures, electric motors (like fridges).

And like YOSC said, I have seen 2.4ghz cordless phones completely shut down a WAP while you're talking on them.
