802.11[a|b] and Bluetooth interfere, because (as I understand it) Bluetooth does nothing to accomodate another device on the same freq., and (again, as I understand it) 802.11[a|b] do.
I can not cite any source, other than a learned and respected friend - sorry.
I take his word on such matters, but I fully understand it could just be one persons opinon...

I was thinking of the 802.11a Spec (somewhere, someone mentioned
having interference problems with the two, or at least my mind is recalling
that...) And I can't find the ref for someone who's asking me for it (and
who think's I'm a little off my rocker because of it...8-) )
