Possible Interference of the USB 3.0 Radio Frequency on 2.4 GHz Wireless Devices#

Under certain circumstances, you may experience interferences or issues when running USB 3.0 cameras or devices in combination with 2.4 GHz wireless devices.

For example, a GPS signal may be interrupted or disappear completely.

The USB 3.0 radio frequency impact on 2.4 GHz devices is described by Intel here.

Further possible preventive measures that could be applied are as follows:

  1. Put as much distance as possible between the camera and the wireless antenna.
  2. Shield the USB 3.0 camera or USB 3.0 connector or both.
  3. Invest in a higher gain antenna for the wireless device.
