40/80 is a mess where I live (in a condo). Somewhere there is a neighbor that has a plasma TV that they fire up right as the band is getting interesting. It even takes out 20 meters. That's when I need to shut down.

I second (third? fourth?) the breaker panel troubleshooting method. I used to have a dimmer switch that would wipe out everything. During a remodel, I replaced it with this and it has absolutely no RFI that I can detect, even when dimming LED bulbs (Costco Fiet LED bulbs, btw). From my research, anything Lutron should be good.

Speaking of which, cheap LED and CFL bulbs can be really nasty, as can many 'OEM replacement' laptop and phone chargers. Older LCD monitors can be leaky, too. If you have wired Ethernet in your home (even between the router and your computer) that can wreak havoc. Many switching power supplies will only emit RFI when they are unplugged from their respective devices, or only when plugged in, or only when charging the battery in the laptop and not at idle, etc.

Lots of things to try out, but start with flipping breakers.

If your house isn't grounded then it isn't grounded. Don't connect the ground wire. That box however looks pretty shallow so you might have to do some fancy wire folding to see if it can fit without the dimmer digging into the wires too much. Some dimmers are more shallow than others.

As for safety...well, if you want the honest answer, your house is overdue for a complete rewire as it looks like it's knob and tube. Short of that, not much can be done now and it's better not to mess with it anymore than it needs to be. If it were me, I wouldn't even try to put in a bigger box because it's a giant pain to deal with plaster and there is no telling what shape those wires are in and the less you move them the better.

This style dimmer is usually ok with those boxes.
