Well I posted about this problem a while back. But I have a 2.4 ghz cordless phone and everytime it rings I loose internet on both of my wireless computers. You guys said to change the channel, and I did that. It worked for some time, but now the problem is back. I tired changing the channel but no luck at all. Is there any way to fix this problem besides buying a new cordless phone on a different frequency?

This is almost always caused by a clash of frequencies. Cordless phones and wireless routers tend to share the same range of frequencies. Normally you get round this by changing the channel number on the router. Don't forget that cordless phones also use channel-changing technology to avoid interference with neighbours phones, for example. Its more than possible that the phone has changed its channel numbers to match the one used by your router.

If your router is near to the phone base, you may need to relocate it away from any bases, the interference is often caused when the base sends out a "I'm ringing" signal to the phones themselves. You often find that once you get past this point, there is no more interference for the duration of the call.
