    Wi-Fi is the the use of Radio Waves to transmit information, and create a network.  Wi-Fi uses frequencies at 2.4, 3.6, and GHz.

     

    This link http://www.jneuhaus.com/fccindex/spectrum.html has information about specific uses of frequencies.

    Microwave ovens use some of the same frequencies.  There are some other thing that use this frequency, but I believe they are not common. (NSA Lighting)
