They can interfere, although changing channels for your wireless
network may help.

The reason that a lot of devices transmit in that frequency band is
that you don't need a license to operate devices in it (similar bands
that you may find phones operating on are somewhere around 900 Mhz and
5.8 Ghz).  I think that we have one or more people on this list who
are ham radio ops - they may be able to provide more information (or
correct any errors that I may have made).
