A few days ago, I got a new monitor off of my brother (acer v233h). it uses an no HDMI and only vga or dvi. Dvi was the only option that I could use with my graphics card. a few days in and I realise how trash my internet has been since the change, so I ran a few tests. The results were that the dvi cable interferes with the Wireless Adapter as there are right next to each other, can anyone tell me why and how to fix.picture

Are there any slots for wifi card to move it away from cord? Try wrapping the dvi cord in a good amount of thickness in electrical tape. It may cut down the interference.
sadly i cant move the Wireless Adapter down from having a small motherboard but i did wrap electrical tape around it and inproved it to

dvi cable- 6 mbps
dvi with tape- 12 mbps
without dvi- 22 mbps
 
Well I don't mean to get in to the weird science stuff but perhaps, aluminum foil on top of electrical tape then more electrical tape? And as much as you can move the antenna away form the cable even if upside down. How close is the monitor to the wifi card?
