    maybe they are competing to use the same resource ... like the USB ports are wired up inside as same single port

    Wireless interference can cause Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices to disconnect or perform poorly, but you can take steps to reduce or overcome it.

    Symptoms of wireless interference

    Any of these symptoms could be caused by interference affecting the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth signal:

    Device doesn't connect or stay connected

    Connection is slow and signal strength is low

    Bluetooth audio skips, stutters, cuts off or has static or buzzing

    Pointer movement is erratic or jumpy

    How to reduce wireless interference

    These general steps can help achieve a cleaner, stronger wireless signal:

    Bring your Wi-Fi device closer to your Wi-Fi router. Bring the Bluetooth devices that are connecting to each other closer together.

    Avoid using your wireless devices near common sources of interference, such as power cables, microwave ovens, fluorescent lights, wireless video cameras and cordless phones.

    Reduce the number of active devices that use the same wireless frequency band. Both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi devices use the 2.4 GHz band, but many Wi-Fi devices can use the 5 GHz band instead. If your Wi-Fi router supports both bands, it might help to connect more of your Wi-Fi devices to the 5GHz band. Some dual-band routers manage this for you automatically.

    Configure your Wi-Fi router to use a different Wi-Fi channel or have it scan for the channel with the least interference. Most routers perform this scan automatically on startup or when reset.Read more..............
