I am having the same problem as this member from AVForums can anyone help me? basically sonys S-air (wifi) speaker system is interfering with my wireless internet does anyone have a solution to this ? here is the post from avforums for more detail.

"Greetings,

My first post on here and hopefully one that will resolve my current issue.
I have recently updated my Media Centre system(HTPC) and installed a wireless G +MIMO Belkin pci card. Everything works really sweet with full signal and 54meg link, coming from my homehub router thats located in the office upstairs.
To complete my system I went out on Saturday and bought the SONY DAV-DZ361W home theatre kit which obviously has the rear wireless speakers. Connected it optically to the optical out on the Media Centre and works a treat.

Now with both on, my wireless connection drops off, can't identify my network name, bad throughput etc etc.
When the system is off my wireless picks up and hey presto I can surf again from my sofa.....
I should be able to surf and listen to music lol

Anyone got any ideas, know of this issue??
I have tried different channel settings on the router to no avail. Just seems my house is now being flooded with a lot of RF and killing everything!

A friend did recommend wrapping everything in tin foil, but that could prove expensive(joke).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Steve"

you can go into your router settings and manually change the channel your wifi is transmitted on if you are having this problem

i have instructions for 02 somewhere if you want them illl have a dig? should be similar for most

This sort of thing is why I'd never advise anyone to go with wireless unless they really need it. Wireless is great for some things, like pretty much everything that moves, be it your mouse, your phone, your laptop, or whatever. But for things that stay static, it's just an expensive way of asking for trouble. I don't get why anyone would want wireless speakers. Would it not be hideously troublesome to fit them with new batteries, and then hideously expensive when those batteries start to fail, and all need to be replaced? All for the sake of saving an hour's work in discreetly laying cables around. Just seems daft to me.

wireless is the future mate eventually everyhing will be connected even your toaster and kettle..so you can have it ready when you come down the street in your electric hovercraft ..although that wont be for a little while yet

who needs wires trailing everywhere, ugly and costly for decent 1's for speakers etc

i do think that all this technology may have an effect on peoples health tho .....possible cancer links etc

You might have more success by switching your wireless to 802.11n or even 802.11a provided it's 5GHz.

Personally I'd get rid of the speakers but that's just me. :)

Frequency band 2.4000 GHz - 2.4835 GHz


Just been reading the manual for this system and it seems you can select channel 1,6 or 11. I'd suggest moving the wireless speakers to channel 1 and then moving your wireless internet to channel 11 or even 13 if your wireless equipment will let you.

Nah - convenience is the future, and the most convenient technology is the one that's going to prevail. Well, the most convenient and cost-effective, anyway. I do love the convenience of having some things as wireless and I don't mind stomaching the extra cost (hence my AKG Guitar Bug, which I went for instead of a £10 cable), but there's just no call for some things to be wireless, especially with the extra hassle involved when sharing that 2.4GHz band. Desktop PCs are one of them, speakers are another. Speakers especially - my Wharfedales are rated at 50w, if memory serves. How bad would the battery situation be for them?

just because product are being made wireless this doesnt have to mean they run off batterys tho:thinking: they can still run off mains supply.

cost has an effect at the moment but as the technology increases you will see it going in different directions and the costs of the technology now falling into line with the norm......economics says the more people who adapt the said technology the more can be manufactured and the costs can then come down

could you even power 50w speakers with batterys and for how long if you could? sorry batteries(sic)

thanks guys for your help, i have fixed the problem by changing it to channel 'C' not realizing that it had a different frequency but the previous post of the manual page has confirmed that this is why it has helped :) i am a happy man now.

just for the record wireless speakers are amazing, but it just depends on if u need them or not , the way my room works, if i didnt have them then i would have a wire running through the middle of my floor.

Edit: The speakers do not run on batteries they need a mains. The speakers themselves are not wireless, they are connected to a wireless unit that connects to the DVD player, so you still have wires for them but it just means u can have them further from the front speakers for larger rooms
