I'm having connection problems with my Razer Nari Ultimate and i don't know if its because i have it connected to a USB 3.0 port on the front of my computer.
I heard about USB 3.0 "radiation" disrupting 2.4ghz connections but the only other USB ports are on the back of my computer facing away from me or on my monitor with a USB 3.0 passthrough. (the receiver is 2.4 ghz)

Monitor:
USB 3.1 Gen 1
Back of computer facing away from me:
USB 2.0
USB 3.1 Gen 1
USB 3.1 Gen 2

I also have my wireless router next to me.
Thank you to anyone who can help me with this.

The 3.0 aspect you're thinking of (and it's not radiation) should only really affect range - which shouldn't matter in this instance at all.

I'd suggest trying in different ports, opposed to trying to guess the best result here.

If the front panel is an issue, I'd personally be inclined to check the monitor via passthrough before the rear ports but, realistically, none of them should really present much issue.
