    maybe a bit OT but after I set up my wireless network, I have been having
    problems with my cordless phones which are 2.4 ghz. That's right in the
    spectrum of the network so I have concluded that there is a conflict. I get
    frequent telephone disconnects poor sound etc etc...

    Moving the phones around has not helped so I am going to try and get a 5.8
    ghz system. Question for the group...anyone using the 5.8 and have any
    problems and would care to recommend a good brand...I am leaning towards a
    Panasonic two phone set

    Thanks for any input

    Why not just change the wireless channel from your router's
    configuration screen? That usually solves the problems.

  3. Hi
    Downgrading to 900MHz, or Upgrading to 5.8GHz solves the problem.

    We had the same problem until we switched to 5.8 phones. No problems

    I did try that also but all channels are in the 2.4 range so it did not
    solve the problem

    I recommend you move the cordless telephone far away from wireless
    router to mitigate interference to the device. This do not solve the
    problem, cause as you know both devices works at 2.4Ghz range.

    Note: The 161 Channel works in 5.802 Ghz range on IEEE 802.11a (wireless A)
    into Americas Region. FYI

    I moved it as far as I could throughout the house and it does not help.
    Still problems

    Please explain your note. I do not understand what you mean...is 5.8 also a

  10. It´s a FYI. Some devices today like Wireless PC Cards, Wireless USB 2.0
    Adapter, Wireless Broadband Routers works on Dual Band mode, thats mean it
    works on 5Ghz (there is a port into this range that works on 5.8 Ghz
    spectrum: the 161)and 2.4Ghz Range. So keep in mind is someone near you buy
    a Dual Band Device can affect your 5.8 Ghz Cordless phone. Or if you buy a
    dual band device and a 5.8Ghz cordless phone.
