Look at the base for the phone system; should indicate somewhere if it's 900mhz, 2.4ghz, or 5.8ghz
You can't really get around this limitation unless you can section off your phones in a different area from your wireless network

Actually you can fix this - without having to move your phones - by changing the channel on the router. If your still watching this Post Crimedogg32 reply with your router Model and Serial Number and i will give you a "How-To". :tazz:

Has worked for me 2 of the 4 times i tried it..... is a 50/50 chance, but it beats moving all the phones if it does.

WRT54G has the option... is the same router I use.

Sorry bout that Crimedogg32, :tazz:

Took you off my watch list since you were so long on the reply. Follow these steps to change channels on your router:

*NOTE* Before starting these steps locate what the frequency range is for your phone (usually on the back of it or do a google search on the model and manufacturer). When you get to step "5" try to pick a frequency range that is outside the frequency range of your phone.

1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. In the address bar type in 192.168.16.1 and hit ENTER.
3. A password request page will appear. Leave the USER NAME field blank.
4. In the PASSWORD field type in ADMIN and hit ENTER.
5. Click on the WIRELESS Link then select the drop down menu from CHANNEL and pick a different one.
6. When your done just click the SAVE SETTINGS button then close out the browser.
7. Shut down the Computer.
8. Remove power from the router.
9. Plug power back into the router.
10. Startup the computer..... and wallah.
11. Repeat as many ntimes as neccessary for different channels if you continue having problems.

Phone frequency is correct yes.

As for the "192.168.16.1" maybe i remeber that one wrong and it is a different address so lets just do it the hard way:


1. Click on START
2. Click on RUN
3. Type in CMD or COMMAND and hit ENTER
4. Type in IPCONFIG and hit ENTER
5. Copy Down the DEFAULT GATEWAY ADDRESS then type in EXIT and hit ENTER
6. Open Internet Explorer.
7. In the address bar type in DEFAULT GATEWAY ADDRESS and hit ENTER.
8. A password request page will appear. Leave the USER NAME field blank.
9. In the PASSWORD field type in ADMIN and hit ENTER.
10. Click on the WIRELESS Link then select the drop down menu from CHANNEL and pick a different one.
11. When your done just click the SAVE SETTINGS button then close out the browser.
12. Shut down the Computer.
13. Remove power from the router.
14. Plug power back into the router.
15. Startup the computer..... and wallah.
16. Repeat as many ntimes as neccessary for different channels if you continue having problems.
