There is probably 100X the normal amount of traffic flowing through the net right now because of what is going on, plus you have sub-systems that are being taxed hard because they have to compensate for the lack of connectivity in Japan, so all traffic is being sent through secondary operation centers and causing routers that aren't as widely used to be pushed to the limits. All traffic to Japan is being routed through Russia instead of from the west coast. Look up "tracert" to see where YOUR traffic is going and how long it takes or try speedtest.net if you want to see what your internet provider is giving in terms of throughput.
To answer your question, no, the type of radiation from Japan would have no impact whatsoever on internet or wireless unless you were sitting in the fallout radius.
Hope that helps!
