    1. does it matter where you plug in your computer? 1, 2, 3, 4 ?
    Is 1 better than 4?
    2. if you have a wifi router is there a way to turn off the wifi section
    temporarily if you are getting interference in other appliances?
    I seem to be getting static in my headphones.

    1. No, it doesn't matter. All ports are equal.

    2. Yes, you should be able to do this in the router setup. Exact instructions will vary depending on your router.

    You can also probably change the channel your wifi network operates on. I think 11 is the default, but you can pick a different one. Make sure you change this on your router and your cards.
