An interfering Instant AP is an Instant AP seen in the RFRadio Frequency. RF refers to the electromagnetic wave frequencies within a range of 3 kHz to 300 GHz, including the frequencies used for communications or Radar signals. environment but it is not connected to the wired network. While the interfering Instant AP can potentially cause RFRadio Frequency. RF refers to the electromagnetic wave frequencies within a range of 3 kHz to 300 GHz, including the frequencies used for communications or Radar signals. interference, it is not considered a direct security threat, because it is not connected to the wired network. However, an interfering Instant AP may be reclassified as a rogue Instant AP.
