so the question is, could the microwave kick everyone off and switch it?
No, but make sure you're not using the same frequency as your neighbor (he might also be hunting around, looking to avoid you too - which would explain the trouble-free times). This widget will help you identify what channel the surrounding neighbors are using.

Also, get your router UP as high as you can. The basement is quite possibly the worst possible choice of placement.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
