I'm taking steps toward setting up a home file and print server, and other toys and the first step is to have my Internet connection on 24/7. The most sensible place to put it is in the laundry room which is on the other side of the wall from my basement office. There is a nice shelving unit in there behind the door which is beside the clothes dryer.
My plan is to have the DSL modem and my wireless router set up on the top shelf there, plugged into my UPS. Being high up will improve wireless reach to the upper floor and the backyard. I would eventually put a PC acting as a server on the same shelving unit.
My concern is - will a dryer that is about 1.5 meters away from these devices cause interference at this distance? If so, is there a way to mitigate it or should I just avoid putting electronics in there altogether? The devices are currently on the other side of the wall from the dryer so it's not much of a move.
