Question Wireless networking

Hello, I was wondering if anyone can help me out here about wireless networking. I am using a Linksys Wireless-G Router (WRT54G) with the high gain TNC antenna kit. Every time my cordless phone rings, I lose my connection, but once I hang up, my connection comes right back... Is there any way to prevent this from happening... or maybe change the frequency settings?

yeha, i think it has to do with the frequency. if its 2.4 ghz for the wirless and 2.4 ghz for the phone, ur screwed. yeah, i suggest u get a 5 ghz phone and above. that'll fix it. radio frequency always screw things up... lol. i dunno if u can change the seting. i think its fixed. new phone i guess...

Macbook Pro and Logitech z5500s. All you really need.

Time to upgrade to the newer 5.8GHz cordless phones.


I want to put a link to BestBuy's website but everytime I go on there, they are down. I'm going to write a complaint to them to do a better job managing their site.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?

from linsky knowledge base:
2.4 GHz interference: Your router may be operating on the same frequency as your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your routerís channel to 1 or 11 (the default is 6) and restart the wireless computers. Consult the routerís documentation or see Answer ID 470 if you are unsure on how to do so.
See if this helped you out
