    I have been having Wifi issues with my home wireless network and my iPad.

    I have narrowed it down to my son's xbox. I can be sitting down using iPad on the wifi network enjoying life and if he starts playing xbox, I lose signal.

    The xbox is not using wifi. We have even tried disconnecting the Internet cable from xbox, but whenever he plays I cannot connect my iPad.

    Is it possible the xbox wireless controllers cause interference?

    Anyone else have this issue or know of a fix? It is frustrating to say the least.

    Thanks.

    Try having him "hard wire" the controller to the xbox via a charging cable or something. See if that eliminates the problem. If it does, you know it's the wireless controller. I have not tried to use my xbox and iPad at the same time so I don't know for sure. I will try when I get home from work though as well.

    what WiFi network are you using? G (2.4GHz) or N (5GHz)? If you can set up a 5GHz N network just for the iPad, that may fix the issue, since it will be operating on a different frequency.

    Didn't think of that. That could work too. Or if you didn't have access to N, maybe just try changing the radio channel in your router settings?

    yeah, I usually keep my G router on channel 11 seems to have the least interference.
