I am running a triple screen setup from my laptop (Dell XPS 15). One HDMI cable connected to the computers HDMI output, and the other two are connected to a dual HDMI to Thunderbolt (USB-C) adapter.
I have noticed that when the adapter is close to the laptop, it loses Internet connection: The Wi-Fi driver seems to completely freak out, it finds no networks, let alone connect to any.
Moving the adapter instantly solves the problem and whatever I was trying to load, pops up immediately. Thus I have deduced that it must be due to interference on the HDMI adpater.
I use my laptop for work so, it’s moved around a lot, which is why the “just make sure the adapter is far enough away” solution is a finicky one.
I am wondering if there is a way to shield/insulate the adapter more permanently?
I wrapped it in tin foil with 2 layers of insulation tape. Which has made a very small difference. Anyone out there know a decent way to insulate from cable interference?
