I was just wondering if an external (USB) wi-fi dongle would it still encounter the same interference issues?

I am about to try it out (have been using wired ethernet with great success) - so I will find out on my own...

With this info about interference, I may put it on a USB extension which will get it away from the USB 3.0 hub too..

Since the built in wifi is degraded by the heatsink/ case I am using, external Wifi sounds like a good idea.

According to the adafruit website : "Look for a WiFi adapter that supports the RTL8192cu chipset the latest Raspbian distributions both have support for this built-in."

I just ordered this: www.adafruit.com/product/1030

I will update with how easy it is to use (I hope) soon after it arrives...

FYI - I just had this same issue:

Brand new RPI 3+
Brand new SD card image
Updated/ upgraded and then got the 404 error page on the desktop

Tried the above command and it ended with:
Setting up indi-sbig (2.1-3) xxx
Processing triggers for ...
...
Processing triggers for initramfs-tools (0.133+deb10u1) ...
Errors were encountered while processing:
libraspberrypi0
libraspberrypi-doc
libraspberrypi-bin
libraspberrypi-doc
rpi-eeprom

did a restart and the web based interface worked... just like jdain said it would!

Thanks for asking/ solving this issue so quickly...
