PostPosted: Fri May 06, 2005 1:42 pm    Post subject: Cordless Phone Advice Needed Reply with quote Back to top

I was told that the best way to implement Vonage service is by setting up a cordless phone base station with several handsets to cover the area of the house. Then I was told that I could setup each jack in the house to be configured for the Vonage service... I will be setting up a wireless connection for my home network within the next month. Can anyone offer advice as to which wireless router setups interact nicely with which cordless phones, or should I not even consider cordless phones with a wireless setup?

Thank you! Rolling Eyes

The older cordless phones used the 2.4Ghz band, which is the same band as is used with both "b" and "g" wireless networks. So that opens up a whole can of interference worms.

Luckily, there are plenty of newer phones on the market that use the 5.8GHz band, which won't interfere with either wireless network protocols. The best of both worlds would be to get a phone that can be expanded, i.e multiple handsets that can connect to the same main base station and satilite stations that do no need to be plugged into a phone port and only used to charge the phones. You can plug the main basestation into your router and just put the satilite stations around the house so you have something to recharge the phones. That way you won't even have to mess with any of the phone wiring in your house.

I have a pair of GE 25840GE3's and they've been working great so far.

I like the Uniden TRU8865-2. It's 5.8Ghz which does NOT interfere with WiFi. The phone has so many features it nuts. Found the best price at Circuit City.

See it here:

http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Uniden-Cordless-Phone-Bundle-TRU8865-2-/sem/rpsm/oid/90891/rpem/ccd/productDetail.do

You can add extensions which is model TCX-800. Up to 10 extension.

I've been very happy with it. All the features are not listed not even at the Uniden.com website.

I, too, am using a Uniden model that is expandable out to 9 extensions. I have one plus the base. The REN of the base unit is a ridiculously low 0.09 REN. That is practically no load on the line at all. At 5.8ghz the range takes me half way down the block. You can clip it to your belt and forget it. It's small and light and full of functions. Very easy to program. I would recommend it.

Hooking up your phone adapter to the house wiring is always an option. You might want to do both, prepare your house wiring like so: http://www.vonage.com/help_knowledgeBase_article.php?category=45&article=649
and use the cordless as well.

Mike

Uniden TRU8888 here also. Works and sounds great. Replaced a vtech i5881 with it, which didn't interfere with the wireless router, but gave me some bad echo.

make sure you tell your family to call your virtual# until your real# is switched to save yourself alot of aggravation and doubting the service.

One thing about the TRU line from Uniden is that they are in fact true 5.8Ghz phones. Not all 5.8Ghz are. Some are only 5.8 one way leaving the other direction 2.4Ghz and potentially causing problems with WiFi networks.

So be sure to check out the phone your buying.

I don't know anything about the wireless equipment discussed here but I do have my ata hardwired into my existing phone jacks. All you have to do is (only if you do away with Ma Bell like I did) remove the wires coming in from the local phone provider off of the box outside your home and attach your ata to the box and then bingo all the phone jacks in your house are wired to your ata
