My new TV is blocking my Wi-Fi

Bugses
 Share

Hi everybody, 

So I've never tried this. I've had one of my Google Wi-Fi sitting in the same place for the last few weeks. Then I came home with a new TV today, a 75" Philips, and then my Wi-Fi didn't work. If I move my Google Wi-Fi just a few feet, then it works just fine. 

What is happening?

Interference most likely.

Is your TV hooked up via Ethernet cable or WiFi?

By Google WiFi, do you mean a mesh setup?

Yeah a mesh setup. It's connected through Wi-Fi as well.

It has been seen before that if a TV or monitor isn't properly shielded, then it will interfere with 5GHz wifi. I don't remember who it was, and I can't find any sources, but there was a big release a few year ago that got a lot of negative press because the TV or monitor didn't work with the router if they were too close together. Also in general, a TV is a large sheet of metal and circuitry, and you shouldn't have anything like that too close to any wifi router or AP.

Looking to buy GTX690, other multi-GPU cards, or single-slot graphics cards:
