Interference between router and wireless sound system

I have an ASUS RT-N56U router along with an LG LH-W9656IA Home Cine Video System connected to my TV with 2 Wifi connected rear speakers and my problem is that a soon as I switch the LG Home Ciné System on , it interferes with my router and provoke the disconnection of all devices previously connected in 2.4GHZ (Computers,Smartphones etc...)
I already tried to change the canal on both router and wifi transmitter of the LG system , that solution may work sometimes but is really fastidious and I would like to know if there would be a way to filter the LG System so that it never interfere with my router Wifi signal

a) Look for other sources of 2.4Ghz interference -- the microwave, cordless phones, baby monitors, etc. are notorious
sources of interference.

b) what channel did you put your wireless on and what channel did you put the LG speakers on? Make sure you're
using one of the 3 nonoverlapping channels, ie. your wireless on channel 1 and the LG on channel 11.

My 00000010bits for starting troubleshooting this.

Download Wifi analyzer app on your smartphone and you may be able to get a clearer picture of the wireless situation.

So put me on a highway, and show me a sign.
And take it to the limit one more time...

That won't do a darn thing since the LG system isn't WiFi. You need an actual spectrum analyzer to know what's going on.

I'd suggest just using 5 GHz WiFi if feasible

Sounds to me like the speakers are NOT wifi, but more like a cordless phone that simply grabs the same wireless freq/channel all for itself. That's why a 2.4GHz cordless phone always kills your wifi router. In contrast, wifi devices "cooperate" w/ each other to share the freq/channel. So there's no way to fix it other than using some other freq/channel for either the TV or router.

You're right , I'm not sure that the wireless signal is Wifi and it's perhaps more like a 2.4GHz cordless phone signal (as said by eibgrad).
However when I put the LG System on and I check the list of the available networks on my computer , a new network appears called 7520063D (unsecured 802.11b) causing the interference and provoking the disconnection of all already connected 2.4Ghz devices...
You're right when you suggest using 5 Ghz to connect to Wifi because there's no interference in that case but my computers are only 2.4Ghz...
I'm not a wifi specialist but I was wondering if there was a way to exclude this parasiting 7520063D network to eliminate the interference?

I had a similar problem with a wireless subwoofer - after working with the vendor, they informed me that wireless ceiling fan controllers interfere with their product.

I returned the system and went with a wired system
