Hello,

          For a while, whenever I connect my wireless headphones using Bluetooth to my Windows 10 laptop, the internet goes a lot slower for an unknown reason. Please help me solve this problem.

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks, Aramus

These might give you some ideas,i dont use Bluetooth devices on my computers but it seems to be a matter of playing with your routers settings,or if nothing works maybe try non bluetooth wireless headphones.

Thanks for the reply but I don't have a Sony Smartwatch or a Google Lexus. I am currently using a Windows 10 laptop. But thanks for trying to help me.

Oh right,not up on bluetooth at all,thought there might be transferable issues...unless you can play with the settings on your router,you might have to live with it or use non wireless headphones i guess.

Some of the Wireless HeadPhones working on 2.4ghz and this is crashing the Wifi signal =).

Check if you can change the frequency on the headset otherwise you can change the channel on your router.

Use channel 11 so you can avoid further wifi interference.

I hope this will resolve your problems.

Hi,

        There is no difference when I change the channel to 11 in the router settings, the audio is the same and the speed too. Thanks for attempting to help me.

Try on channel 7 as well.

In case this occur again get rid of the headset =) 

I amend the 11 because is on high frequencies 2.462 GHZ - I was hoping will be good enough. 7 is using 2.442GHZ its bit lower but still really stable.

In case both failing that mean the head set using way to high transmitter and will noise the rest :)

Wikipedia defines Bluetooth as “a proprietary open wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances”. Which basically means it’s a wireless transmitter and receiver. Bluetooth uses the microwave frequency spectrum in the range of 2.4 GHz to 2.4835 GHz, the same as your microwave oven. That means the frequency of electromagnetic fields or EMFs should sound an alarm.

Some vendors abuse this frequency for larger coverage but this is definitely unhealthy.

Most people just ignore such facts without realize this will harm them.

Which mean you need be extremely careful when choosing Bluetooth head set especially ;)  

In this case I can confirm this headphones working over 2.5 GHZ as manage to noise the 11 channel maximum frequencies power.

But this this is personal choice :)

Yes,not ssuprised at all,never got a good feeling about blutooth devices,same issue as the Mobile phone microwave frequency.

I mean that frequency basically fries you and makes holes in your brain...Everywhere now,wireless dongles even..

 

I limit people in my apartment to only so much time on smartphones and such..much too their annoyance,we have wifi aso cos cable its harder to get cable.Like you say,personal choice.

 

So back to the topic,can Aramus get an appropriate (hopefully non harmfull) frequency to work with wireless,or do you think hes better to move to non wireless?
