The MicroWave Oven (MWO) is a popular appliance that acts as an unintentional interferer for 2.4 GHz IEEE 802.11 Wi-Fi communication signals. An interference mitigation technique is developed that incorporates cognitive radio paradigms allowing Wi-Fi devices to reliably transmit information while a residential MWO is operating. This technique is applied in the experimental case where Barker spread Wi-Fi signals carry data in the presence of MWO emissions. Bit error rate is evaluated to provide a performance metric for the mitigation technique.
