Hi,

Whenever I use my cordless phone (Panasonic 2.4GHz) I
lose my wireless connection. I dont even need to by
using the phone line. I lose my connection even if i'm
just checking who called.

I guess because they're on the same frequency. I keep my voice mail/main
phone out of direct line of my wireless and I try to keep the extensions out
of the way too. I haven't had any problems with my 4 computers on the 500
series.

First verify that you have the DSL filter on all lines
connected to phones.

Then, try to change the channel on the phone (check the
phone manual), and on the router. Changing the channel
changes the operating frequency slightly, and you may be
able to avoid overlapping them. Try with extreme channels
(e.g. 1 and 11 on the router). Make sure to change also
the wireless card on the PC to the same channel on the
router, otherless the wifi won't work properly.

If this doesn't resolve the provblem (for me it worked
fine), the extreme solution is to replace the phone by a
5GHz set, instead of the 2.4

I have this same problem and was advised that the
Panasonic phones are the worst offenders. Uniden makes a
2.4 version that works well with 802.11b/g.

Unfortunately, my problem is that my neighbor has an
offending phone, and everytime he answers his phone, my
network goes kaput until his conversation is over. Maybe
I'll offer to buy him a Uniden.
