Once wireless LAN's became popular, most phone manufacturers changed the frequency that the cordless phones use. Except Panasonic. I use the new VTech 5.8 Ghz with 3 handsets and have not had any problems at all.

The channell 11 change seems to have improved my issue. Every now and then the network drops out, but I'm using it farthers from the base station anyways, so that might have something to do with it.

Thanks.

Anyone know of a good cordless phone to use w/ Vonage that's 802.11 friendly. My stupid Uniden phone constantly cuts off my wireless network connection.

I want to buy a new phone, multiple handsets... that sounds well w/ Vonage and won't knock my 802.11 connection out.

Thanks!


I use a V-Tech 2421 phone set which works great with Vonage. It comes with two handsets, sounds clear, and has a flashing indicator light when someone leaves a message in my Vonage voicemail system (both phones as well as the main base have a flashing light when a message is waiting). Very Happy A while back I had read in this forum that some of the phones that people are using don't flash when they receive a Vonage voicemail. They have to depend on the stutter tone to know if they have voicemail.

Has anybody tried any ATT phones lately with Vonage? I LOVED their corded "office type" desk phone with call waiting caller ID. Unfortunately, it was one that threw you into instant three-way call, I think it was. I just wondered with all the firmware upgrades, etc., if we could branch out to other models. I know ATT, GE and BellSouth, etc., were all TOTALLY nonfunctional when I shopped for a desk phone before. My Panasonic works. I just HATE it. Lol

The ATT desk phone was a much nicer unit overall for the same money.

What you have to be weary of is the freequency that your router is processing at. If it is at 2.4 g and your phone is 2.4 g you can expect to get interference. It works the same as if you were to have 2 separate lines with 2 separate 2.4 g phones. The freequencies would cross each other and you will have to reset your phones on the base.

If you want longer range phones don't go to the higher freequencies. I needed to be convinced of this myself, but if you think about it, AM radio stations transmit at a much longer distance than fm, thus, 900 mhz phones actually transmit at a longer range than 2.4.

A little more info than you were probably looking for but I ran into the same problem myself with our business. The only problem is that it is getting harder to get good 900 mhz phones nowadays.

We use the Vtech 5.8 gig phones. We have a wireless router that it does not interfere with, in fact, it never gets interfered with (the wireless internet, cordless phones, gamecube wireless controllers, vonage). they all work great together.

I have to disagree with you. I have Uniden 5.8 and a 900 phones. The range on the 5.8 is more than three times the 900 phone. Maybe it is the model but looking back at all the phones i have owned, most of the 900 phones would work while I was on my lot. My 5.8 phones work 3 blocks away.

My favorite phones were the siemens(sp) 2.4. Good range Caller ID and you could transfer your phone book to any of the phones instead of entering it manually into each phone. They worked really well for about 1 1/2 years and the batteries started going bad. I could not get replacements locally and got rid of the phones and bought the 5.8 Unidens. I am fairly happy with them exept you cannot use them both at the same time.

I highly recommend the 5.8 GHz Uniden Tru8860. It works great, sounds great and the message indicator light works with Vonage. Check out other threads in the forum about this phone system.

I have a Uniden Tru8885 that I have been using for about 2 years. I recently upgraded to a Uniden True8866 for the two line feature. The 8885 has a built-in answering machine and the message light will not work with Vonage VM but the phone is excellent and in good shape. Base plus two handheld units. PM me if your interested in it. 5.8 GHz and one of the best cordless phones I've ever used.

I'll echo this post and the previous ones. I have two Uniden phones (the 8866 2-line and the 8860). Both work very well, including the message lamps. I haven't needed the expansion handsets yet, but with three daughters I will soon, I'm sure. I have an 802.11b network and had problems with 2.4ghz phones; none with these 5.8ghz phones.
