Cyndi, Yes, it is very possible that the microwave oven is interfering with your wireless internet. Microwave ovens use microwaves or radio waves with frequencies around 2.5 GigaHertz (GHz); this corresponds to the ISM band (for Industrial, Scientific, and Medical applications)that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has made available for wireless networking. Moreover, the wireless networking uses very low level signals - so they could be prone to interference from the 2.5 GHz signals coming from the microwave oven. Best regards, Eric
