    What is it? What does it do?

    Edit: Misspelled in the title. I meant Interference.

    Um.

    Interference Robustness helps a wireless connection overcome outside sources of signal interference, but I don't think this has anything to do with Safari.

    I've never heard of "Interface Robustness" for Safari.

    AirPort has a setting for "Interference Robustness," but that doesn't directly have anything to do with Safari. It helps cut down on interference for your wireless signal from things like microwaves...at the sacrifice of a bit of speed.

    do you, or anyone else for that matter, know if Apple have released any documentation on this 'feature'? it'd be interesting to see their tech docs on it to see just exactly what it does.

    Ah yes, you guys are correct...my bad. :eek:

    There used to be a pretty good explanation on the Orinoco Wireless web site, but that whole site appears to have disappeared as Orinoco got passed around among Lucent, its spinoffs, and Proxim.

    Apple is more or less mum on the issue, except for some simple info in an AirPort Extreme PDF document:
