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!

Hi,

I don't have a wireless network. But don't a lot of the wireless networks operate on the same frequency as the newer cordless phones? 2.4GHz?

Maybe switching to a cordless phone that operates on a different frequency/band (or whatever the proper term is) -- if your cordless phone and wireless router are on the same band -- would solve the problem?

I use an el-cheapo cordless Uniden 900MHz phone that I paid under 20.00 for, and it works fine (although i don't have a wireless computer network, as i stated above), I can go in my backyard with it too.

dynastar,

I just did a google search with certain applicable terms:

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=utf-8&q=wireless+router+2.4Ghz+cordless+phone+conflict&btnG=Google+Search

One of the returns in the above search included the following tip:

Quote:

Tip for 2.4GHz Cordless Phone Users
Worried about interference between your 2.4GHz phone and a wireless network? While the two share the same frequency band, there is lots of space for the two system to work together without interfering with each other. For 802.11 series wireless networking products, most experts suggest using wireless channel 11. (All D-Link 802.11b Wireless devices default to channel 6). This frequency is often outside the frequency band of most 2.4GHz phones. Also, in the 802.11b (2.4GHz) standard there are 11 channels to choose from, all but three of those channels are overlapping channels. Channels 1, 6, and 11 are the only non-overlapping channels.


Maybe something along those lines will work for you? If not, perhaps experiment with a cordless phone that's on a diff band, such as 900Mhz (assuming your current phone and router are on the same band). You could always return the phone for your money back (depending on where you buy it) if it doesn't work out.

Anyway, please let me know if you solve the problem -- and how you solved it (since I went through the trouble of looking through google results, etc. Wink ) I might go to a wireless router/network someday myself, so am curious too.

Thanks.

Thought I had tried channel 11 but I'll try it again.

Appreciate the search.

Try the Panasonic KX-TG5110M set. Alternatively you can get the KX-TG5100M and add handsets (KX-TGA510) as you wish.

Look for 5.8GHz phone, like Panasonic one mentioned in earlier post. 2.4GHz is known to interfear with 802.11b network.

Hope it helps.

Thanks for the tip. I haven't received my VT1005 ATA device from Vonage yet to try Voip calls but for normal POTS calls, I have not noticed any particular interference between my US Robotics 8054 802.11g wireless router and my Panasonic KX-TG2352 cordless phones, both operating at 2.4GHz with both base units located within a foot of each other.

Despite that I'm going to look into the Channel 11 thing.

Bob Carroll, http://www.las-vegas-shopping.net

UPDATE: I just checked my USR8054 wireless router settings. It appears that this particular router DEFAULTS to Channel 11 on wireless. I guess that might be why I did not get any interference.

I use the olympia wireless system (cheapest system from OfficeDepot). One base unit/phone jack provides connections to up to 4 wireless phones. It uses the 2.4 ghz band but has never broken a connection so I suspect it checks the channels before choosing one. My wireless is the Linksys BEFW11S4.

I have a Panasonic system-KX-TGA270S and upgraded from a SMC 802.11b to netgear 802.11g. When I did the wireless network became unusable, constantly dropping out etc. I tried channell 11 like everyone said and no help. then i tried channell 7 for the wireless network and haven't had a problem since. Everyone keeps recommending channell 11 but keep in mind this could be the problem sometimes.
