Speaking of wireless connections, does anyone know if steel will
disrupt a wireless connection? I have a wireless connection in a older
building that has steel beams in the walls instead of wood 2X4's.
Thanks

It can interfere with it -- limiting the range. However, my work site is
constructed of metal 2/4's instead of the wooden ones. I get a
reasonable signal.

While a continuous layer of steel or a fine enough mesh will block the
signal completely, steel studs on 16" centers should have little effect
unless there's one directly between the transmitter and receiver.

Yes, steel buildings can interfere with wireless devices of any kind.
