Very interesting for me who does not really understand all this stuff.
‘Microwave ovens can interfere with your Wi-Fi network.’
This one is no myth. A microwave oven can emit a tremendous amount of energy while heating up your leftover Chinese takeout.
Mac OS X users can simply hold down the Option key while clicking the Wi-Fi icon in the upper-right corner of the menu bar. When you do, you’ll see many more details about your network: for example, the Ethernet standard that your network is using (802.11 a/b/n/ac), the channel that your router is on, the type of security that’s enabled, and the transmission rate and strength of your wireless signal via the RSSI (received signal strength indicator).
Some more stuff I found entertaining, like putting tinfoil on your Wi-Fi antennae. No kidding. It works!
