Conflicts with radio telephones - channel changes?

    My wireless network keeps being lost by my remote laptop.

    I have a Linksys Wireless-G ADSL Gateway WAG54G router as my internet
    connection, an ethernet connection to a main machine and a wireless
    connection to my Windows XP Home laptop.

    I have been advised that the fact that my wireless network connection keeps
    dropping may be because my wireless transmitter is adjacent to the base unit
    of my wireless telephone system Freeelance XD500.

    It was suggested that I try changing the wireless "channel"; I have
    successfully altered the channel using the Linksys control utility but can
    find no option in Windows XP home to alter the channel on the remote laptop.
    It connects ok when the default channel (11) is used but does not see the
    wireless network at all when any other channel is selected.

    Does anyone have any advice please? Perhpas how to alter the channel within
    Windows XP Home?

    Stuart.

    you might want to move them physically apart a bit also... but the setting
    for channel is on the laptop's wireless adapter driver properties, advanced
    tab, in the list of properties mine is called IBSS Channel Number.

  3. If you are using XP to manage your wireless connection you only have to
    change the channel on the AP, reboot the AP to make sure that your machine
    pick up the new channel. If you use a utility from Linksys to manager your
    wireless connection, you need to check where to change the channel using
    Linksys. Have you also tried to disconnect your phone? Do you have
    uninterrupted wirless connection after that?
