Set up: Bt Home Hub Router, two laptops Ubuntu 11:10 and other 11:04 and iPod Touch.
I live in a small rural village in the UK and have had no problems with wifi for many months. In the past 3 days our wifi drops out in that we can "see" the SSID from the Router but neither of the laptops nor the iTouch can access the internet. On all 3 days the drop out has occurred when my neighbour's father parks his Toyota Prius (hybrid with many batteries) across the road. We can access the internet when connected via ethernet cable. To check the theory our wifi dropped out when he arrived and worked again THE MINUTE he left! I've spoken to the neighbours and they (in their own words) are a non-tech family in that they have an iPad and BT Router only and no other technical gadget they use. Yesterday I checked to see if the problem was caused by the Prius being charged but it was not. As I say because we are in a small community it is relatively easy to ascertain if anything untoward is going on and the only "change" that coincides with the wifi drop out is this car arriving. Has anyone heard of this issue? I have "googled" this but to no avail. Any ideas and help will be gratefully received.
