It is possible that a 2.4GHz wireless phone could interfere with the operation of a wireless network. They both operate in the same frequency band. However, the possibility is limited because phones typically check the "air" before choosing which channel to operate on. They will likely pick a clear channel that won't interfere with the network. If you manually change the channel on the phone while in use, you could potentially step on the networks channel and crash the network.

Will your internet box interfear with a cordless phone if they are to close together ?


A wireless router and wireless network adapters can have interference issues with cordless phones. It depends on the network adapter frequency and the cordless phone's frequency. Most problems will occur with a phone that uses 2.4GHz. This frequency will interfere with 802.11b/g networks and single-band 802.11n wireless signals.

A DECT cordless phone operates at a different frequency from the 802.11g and 802.11n single-band and will not interfere with a wi-fi network with those modes.

However, some routers and wireless adapters can use the 5GHz range (802.11n and 802.11ac, among them). These can have a problem with cordless phones that use 5.8GHz. However, there is a simple solution to avoid much of the interference at 5GHz. First determine the frequency range of your phone by getting the FCC ID from the base of the phone. Then use Google or another search engine to find "FCC ID Search Form". It has been at http://transition.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid/ in the past. The first three characters are the Grantee ID for the search form. The rest is the product ID. Look for the SAR report for the phone and then (probably on the second page) find the TX frequency range and the Max RF output power tested. Now go to the wireless router's setting page and make sure that it is using channels that do not use the same frequency and power range. See http://bradsfavorite.com/avoid-interference-5-ghz-wifi-5-8-ghz-cordless-phones/ below the 5GHz Wifi Frequencies for a table with the channel and frequency ranges for routers.

Once everything is clear, you can visit ScanmySpeed.com and have an internet speed test to ensure that there is no disturbance in your connection.

Panasonic KXTG2344 Phone 2,4ghz malfunction with microwave


You can change the channel used by the phone in the settings, but the better option is to make sure the charger base is nowhere near the microware.

Also, make sure that the microwave and the charger base are NOT plugged into the same outlet. I would even try a different outlet than you are using now as interference would definitely pass through the line.

My phones don't work they all say


Unusual problem on a new phone. Could possibly be radio frequency interference close by.

Some cordless phones operate on the same frequencies as in-home wireless networks. I believe this is the 2.8 megahertz frequency. The phones and the wireless networks can interfere with each other.

Most newer cordless phones are higher frequency (5.8 megahertz?). Wireless networks shouldn't interfere with those phones, but there could be other things that could (e.g., transformers on power poles).

If the phones are new, you might consider taking them back and getting another model.

Weak signal recption


Since wireless networks use radio waves to transmit signals, it’s possible that typical household electronics-your microwave, cordless phone or even the baby monitor- can interfere with this signal. Make sure you move your wireless router away from those devices that use the same 2.4GHz frequency range.
Other causes of interference are brick and cinder block walls, metal doors, metal frames around windows and doors, and metal filing cabinets.
Take these simple steps to reduce wireless interference:
  1. Move the router further away from the interfering device or object.
  2. If there is interference with a phone, you can change the channel of the phone or the Router so they use different channels. If there is still too much interference, you may have to buy a different phone system, operating at either 900MHz or 5GHz.
  3. Place the wireless router in a central location of your house, such as a family room or office.
  4. Arrange the desktop or laptop’s wireless antenna so that it points toward the wireless router.
  5. Avoid placing the antenna close to an outside wall (unless outside is where you want to be). If you want to connect while you’re outside, place the router near a window.
  6. Place your Access Point as high as possible. If your network goes through multiple floors, try to place the Access Point on the upper floor
