Smart meters blamed for Wi-Fi router traffic jamSmart meters blamed for Wi-Fi router traffic jam | Green Tech - CNET News
The smart meters use the unlicensed 2.4GHz frequency band. So if a Wi-Fi router or other device, such as a garage door opener, overlaps on the same channel, there can be some interference, according Central Maine Power. The problem can be addressed by moving devices away from the smart meter or changing the channel that electronics use, the utility says in its smart meter FAQ.
