First off all You should try disconnecting the phone for a few hours and then checking your internet connection. if the problem reoocures while the phone is unplugged then the phone is not at fault. If it doesn't - reconnect the phone verify that it's not plugged to the same power outlet as the router and place the Vtech base in a diffrent part of the room. good Luck

Lose connection when the phone rings.


I wonder if your phone is a cordless one operating in the 2.4Ghz range, in a way that it causes interferences in the Wi-Fi connections. If that is your case, you could try a simple measure, like changing the position of one of one the devices in your house, so that one of them could be placed away from the other one. You could also try changing the communication channel, either on your phone, or in the Wi-Fi device.
Just my 2 cents... Carlos

One of my vtech 5867 handsets is frozen. It is stuck on one caller id. Battery is charged. What to do?


Have you tried re-establishing connection with the base unit? Try setting it on the base and wait for the charge light to blink a couple of times and re-connect the handset and see if that helps.

Wifi interference??


The short answer is that it could interfere with the wi-fi, but your wi-fi should not interfere with your phone because it uses WDECT, "wide-band digitally enhanced cordless telecommunications" engineering. No matter how tight the bandwidth is on any RF transmission, power, proximity, and harmonics all play a roll. Ideally we want the power from our transmission to occupy the target frequency but the reality in RF is that this is nearly impossible without DSP filters. I have pasted some extra info below to help answer this question.

Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications
(DECT), known as Digital European Cordless Telephone[1] until 1995, is an ETSI standard for digital portable phones (cordless home telephones), commonly used for domestic or corporate purposes. It is recognised by the ITU as fulfilling the IMT-2000 requirements and thus qualifies as a 3G system.


The four most common frequencies today are 900MHz, 2.4GHz, 5.8GHz and DECT 6.0:

900 MHz Currentlythe most common frequency for cordless phones, 900MHz phones may offera greater range than other frequencies. However, the 900MHz spectrum iscluttered and may result in interference with baby monitors and other900MHz cordless phones. Radio scanners can also easily pick up thisband. 2.4 GHz 2.4GHzphones offer better clarity and security than 900MHz, but mayexperience some interference with microwave ovens and wirelessnetworking (wi-fi) products. 5.8 GHz Themost advanced cordless phones available, 5.8GHz phones transmit on anew, open frequency and have the least chance for interference. Theywill not interfere with wireless networking (wi-fi) products. DECT 6.0 DECT6.0 operates on the 1.9GHz frequency. Though newly approved in the US,this frequency has been used for many years in Europe and can increasecall clarity and security. The wi-fi friendly DECT technology easilyintegrates into homes with wi-fi and internet services because the1.9GHz frequency is exclusive to DECT, making it interference free forcordless communications.

Does your handset have a PROG button? Press that, then press the VOL+ button until you come to RINGER VOL: OFF. Press SELECT button, then use the ^ (VOL+) key until you get the desired volume level. Press SELECT again, then OFF. You're good to go.
