    Should I enable "Use interference robustness" for my wireless connection on my Mac? I have several 2.4 GHz telephones around the house, but it appears that my internet and download speeds are unaffected by them. But should I enable the interference robustness, anyways? What kinds of problems would occur and I should keep an eye out for, if the 2.4 GHz wireless telephones are causing me problems? And what would I gain and lose if I enable "Use interference robustness"? Would my speeds increase but my distance allowed from the wireless access point, decrease?

    Thanks! :)

    Interference robustness:

    Only use it if you need it. If your connection is acting all whacky, then turn it on and see if it helps. If just want it on for the heck of it, then you should know it basically reduces speed for a more stable connection. By how much? I don't know.
