Major lag with Oculus VR

The moment I plug in my Oculus Rift headset all things that rely on a wireless internet connection go super slow or even stop working all together. I struggle to play VR online games due to super high ping such as Pavlov as I often find I have a ping of 254. I can't use my computer for the internet with the headset plugged in or stream YouTube videos if I'm near it. I suspect the headset is interfering with Wi-Fi signals (or something like that) and want to know if there's an easier way to cure my high ping instead of waiting hours for it to smooth out?

    If you're using a USB Wi-Fi dongle it's probably that you're overloading your USB bandwidth rather than any interference.

    My PC has a built in one. Do you recon the same problem could happen to that one?
