Try moving the radio away from the wireless router or the wireless router away from the radio.

There should be a key on the keyboard to enable/ disable the wireless feature. As riider suggested, separating the two should stop the problem. Could be the computer itself is too close. You haven't made that clear.

Thanks for your answer. The computer and the router are about 20 ft away from the radio in question. As I do not need a wireless router I was told the wireless feature could be turned off and that is what I wish to do

Go into router set up/management and you can switch wifi off.

What make and model is your router?

To get into the router setup and turn off Wifi you type something like 192.168.1.1 into your browser (IE, Chrome etc) address line. Exactly what you type in varies with routers, which is one good reason why we need its make and model number. It's just a series of menus but with the information we might be able to advise in more detail.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If this radio is a normal broadcast radio then it is very unlikely it is the router causing the interference, Wifi and broadcast frequencies are to far apart to interfere with each other.

It is far more likely that it is the computer itself that is causing the interference as they generate frequencies all over the broadcast bands.

Even so, it is always a good idea to disable wi-fi on a router of you are not using it. It lessens that chance of someone hacking into you router.

Re #5.

From the manual, this is what you type in the browser to open the router page:

192.168.0.1

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Thanks for your help. I have typed in 192.168.0.1 as advised by someone else. I will now try 192. 168.1.1 as you advise and will let you know. Unfortuneately I do not have the manual for the router. I have also been advised that to turn the wireless part of the router off as it broadcasts a message all the time and that is what is causing the problem

My post 7 above takes you to the manual and the page where you can read how to enable/disable the wifi… It will also include the actual ip address you use to access the router management… And the manual will tell you what the login and password are too.

Routers with wifi enabled will broadcast a signal to identify themselves. It's known as the SSID. In any properly configured wifi the SSID visible/broadcasting will be visible in a list of wifi access points in your immediate area - but will require a password/key from any device wishing to connect to it. Often that SSID is hidden - so it won't be shown in the list of access points, and you need to know what it is in order to connect to it - with the password of course.

I have "never" heard of that signal causing interference on domestic radio, tv or phone systems…; nor in any broadcast environment.

Your #10 has confused me. Have you read all the responses?

I advised you to use 192.168.0.1 (#9) which is given in the manual at #7 - click the link there to view it. My reference to 192.168.1.1 earlier was just to give you an idea of the format used to access a router, before we knew which one it was.

There might be a key for doing this but we would need to know the make and model number of your computer to look into this possibility. Disabling it in the router is more permanent.

How did you determine that the Wifi was causing the interference on your radio - did it go when you turned off the router?

Router is D-link 615 and the manual covers it all.

I'm wondering if " our friend" is confusing the wifi on/off button on most laptops these days; the one that switches off (or on accordingly) the wifi adapter in the laptop. And "that" button of course has no effect on the router - which is where he needs to go switch wifi service off ( to disable it).

Yes, although it would be as well to know how hilfran proved what was the source of interference. I can only assume it was because the interference ceased when either the computer or the router was switched off. If it went away when the computer was turned off then it might not be a Wifi issue at all.

Could you let us know please?
