Hm, I have SBC Yahoo DSL and a Linksys router on the main computer. I installed a Linksys wireless-g router on my laptop. Problem is, whenever someone calls the hoouse phone, the Wireless Internet dies while the internet works fine on the maini computer. Any ideas why?

You can try switching to other channels in the wireless router, this might help. It may require some experimentation and patience on your part to find a channel that is most reliable.

Put as much distance as possible between your cordless telephone handset and/or base and the wireless computer components, meaning the computer and the access point.

You may find that microwave ovens (when in use) also interfere with your wireless network operating properly. Something to keep in mind when placing or moving access points.
