Hi,
I found out that microwave ovens and some cell phones cause
interfering problems and destroys wi-fi signals.

Is it valid also for air conditioner's outdoor units? Can a working
air conditioner (outdoor unit) damage wi-fi signalling?

Aren't you supposed to be working -- at Paul Ricard?

What do you mean? A technician talked about air conditioners and
wireless signals can affect themselves. Or batteries of remote
controls. I just wonder whether A/C affects wireless performance.

They all share the 2.4GHz band.  There are a rather large list of
other interference sources.  See the FAQ at:

No and No.  Some air conditioners have 2.4GHz remote controls, but
there's nothing inside the air conditioner that uses 2.4GHz or might
generate a 2.4GHz signal.
