When the Linksys unit is connected to the network, the clients two way radio goes nuts on certain channels. Replace the Voip with a standard wired router there is no interference.

Anyone else encounter this and if so how did you solve the problem?

gonna need more detail. what network, what devices, etc etc.

edit: whoops, sorry, I should read the subject. it's definitely the RT31P2 and not the WRT54GP2 (wireless linksys/vonage router? not that I know of any radios that operate on 2.4ghz but...)
the RT31P2 basically is a normal router for the most part, with two phone plugs. what radios are they?

A lot of computer and other electronic equipment radiate rf energy that can and does interfere with radio equipment. The easiest fix is distance and shielding. Separate the two as much as you can.

These are VHF Two-way radios (Vertex 3200) running 148-174MHz band. This is the only location to date that I have run into this.

One computer connected to the router and on 900MHz cordless phone.

I don't quite understand what routers you are discussing. The topic reads "RT31P2 interferes with radios". The RT31P2 is a wired router and shouldn't be causing anyone any grief. You must be discussing another router. It is hard to decipher what your problem is except you must be discussing a different router. I have to glean this information from the comments of the other members on this topic. Modern telephones operate at 900mhz and 2.4ghz. I'll bet that it is the latter that is causing all the grief.

This exactly my problem, the RT31P2 is a wired router/voice gateway. One client is connected to the RT31P2 router and we have a 900MHz cordless phone connected to the phone port.

The Linksys RT31P2 started generating interference with the radio before the phone was connected and powered up.

I am truly perplexed about what the Voip is generating to interfere with the radio, on paper there is nothing that should be interfering. Once the Linksys RT31P2 is removed and replaced with a Linksys broadband router the problem goes away.

No, it is not the wrong model. It is the wired one. I'm a volunteer firefighter and our frequency is 33.86. Whenever the Vonage voice connection is in use the channel floods with static. It is only when the voice is in use. It will start about 10 to 15 seconds after the conversation starts, and ends as soon as you hang up. It even happens when the phone is in a totally different room (Vonage voice is wired to several rooms).

This is really annoying, and a couple of times I've turned the radio down to use the phone, forgotten to turn it back up, and missed a fire call.

We never did find the cause of this, the client would power down the Voip when using the radio.

We suspected a ground loop condition in the trailer wiring. My next step was to isolate the Voip power and see if that cured it. I could not replicate this in the shop so the mystery continues.

Sorry that you are having problems too but now I know I am not losing it Smile

The RT31P2 like any other electronic device when active generates an EM field around it that interferes with transmissions in the low megahertz range. The RT31P2 uses only 12VDC and 1 A so it wouldn't be a huge field around it however I will quote the manual here :

Quote:
This product has been tested and complies with the specifications for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used according to the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which is found by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

    Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna
    Increase the separation between the equipment or devices
    Connect the equipment to an outlet other than the receiver's
    Consult a dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for assistance



So you can either follow those suggestions or get a new radio at a higher frequency.

Hope this helps..
