Comment 802.11g and 2.4GHz phones (Score 1) 499

I had a similar issue at an old apartment. I tracked it down to my 2.4GHz phone - whenever it would ring or we would talk on it, it would knock our 802.11abg router signal out. They both operate at 2.4GHz, causing the interference. I replaced my phone with a 5.8GHz phone, and that took some of it away. Our neighbors also had a 2.4GHz phone, and whenever they would get on the same thing would happen. My final solution was to move :) I've had few issues since I moved to a 5.8GHz phone and 802.11n router.
