I used to have 2.4GHz wireless internet, though the box with the
2.4GHz radio & antenna (POE) were not on the tower, but
on the roof of the house about 60 feet from the tower, pointing
away from the tower. (I think it was a Karlnet KN100 box.)
If running 1kw on HF, I would occassionally experience a temporary
cessation of the internet link, but it would always resume as soon
as my signal stopped. It didn't happen all the time, just once in a
while. I don't believe it ever happened with 100 watts, either from
HF or 6m or 2m. In any event, it was basically a non-issue, so I
never needed to try to "fix" it.
(The low-power 2.4GHz never bothered my ham stuff at all.)
If you mount your ISP equip on the tower, I suppose you
might have more of a potential issue. If you can live with
short drops of service, maybe it won't even matter.
