ok, i know this isnt specifically a Xnet topic, but the services i use are so though people in similar situations would most likely browse this area.

I have a Wag54gpv2 for my fusion connection, servicing 1 VFX VoIP line. The services themselves are fine and all goes fine when running a corded phone. When using a Cordless phone there is a fair amount of static though.

I am aware that the phone itself is not the greatest (it was free from TCNZ about 2 years ago, so gathering its fairly low quality TBH), would this problem be fixed by moving the phone base a certain distance away from the router? or would it simply be a case of buying a half decent cordless phone?

How would one sucessfully elimimate RFI interference between the two?

at the end of the day, the static isn that overpowering and conversations are still audible over the top, but thought the question warranted asking (applies to any home wireless setup aswell i imagine).

Wifi + Cordless phone using 2.4ghz range = potential issues

Most cheaper cordless phones available are running on 2.4ghz which is the same range as your Wifi, so there is potential for conflicts... you can try changing the channel on your router to a different one and see if that reduces the phone interference.

Personally I went for a 1.8ghz (DECT) based cordless phone to avoid any issues with my 11g network at home.

So if you look for a new phone, go DECT or 5.8ghz.

Do not confuse DECT with WDECT either. Uniden use WDECT to describe their 2.4Ghz phones.

Being completely ignorant in this area I'll have to ask what the difference is.

I have the same setup as testing123 but use a Uniden cordless phone (overseas right now so can't provide a model number), but I have not experienced a static problem.

DECT is an international standard. It runs on 1.8 Ghz so therefore is vendor inspecific.

WDECT is a promotional term developed by Uniden to describe their 2.4 Ghz range as that range has similar features to normal DECT units but is vendor specific.





Hmmmm
