I use a wireless connection for my laptop, and our family has a chordless phone upstairs. It is obvious that when the phone rings, my connection drops very rapidly, so I know that there is an inturuption in signals when the two divices are used simutaniuosly.

My question is, does anyone know what it is that I am able to purchase or do for my house phone so that it won't inturupt my wireless connection?

Your phone and wireless may be operating on the same RF frequency (2.4 GHx). Even microwave ovens will have some effect depending on the proximity of each to the other.

Not much you can do except get a cordless phone or wireless that operate on different frequencies.

Maybe some one else has a suggestion. Changing operating channels probably would not be effective, but you can try if your wireless has provision for this.
