Hi!

This is a classic interference problem for wireless routers and adapters (specially if both your phone, wireless router and adapters are on the same frequency - say 2.4Ghz).

What we can try first is to change the channel on your wireless router. If you can specify the model/brand of your router I will be able to give you the specific steps in changing the wireless channel.

Second solution would be to move the wireless router and the base station of your cordless phone away from each other.

Third solution would be to replace the cordless phone with a unit that uses a different frequency (say a 5Ghz phone).

Regarding your USB wireless adapter, well it's just a receiver of a signal and there is nothing we can change on that device to resolve the problem. This is a problem between your wireless router and your cordless phone.

I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

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.

I have a DIR 615 Dlink wireless router connected to a Dell computer running XP Pro. Checked for latest firmware, had it. About every 2 or 3 days it will stop broadcasting a signal and I can not logon with...


Ok this might be a bit tricky but it sounds like there is another wireless signal that may be interfering with yours.

Do you have an older cordless phone in the house? If so try and move the cordless base farther away from the wireless router. Even if they are on different floors in your house, if they are located near each other the cordless can interfere with the wireless signal.

The other possibility is that there is signal that is coming from the outside of your location and is causing the interference.

I know that when I had an XP Pro machine (Laptop) it would drop the wireless signal every couple of days or so. I traced my problem to my neighbors cordless phone. he had an old one and it was near the side of my house that my router was on and it was causing me problems so I move my router and the problem went away.

hope this helps

Toshiba laptop with IOgear bluetooth adapter installed will recognize phone but won't detect plantronics explorer headpiece. I would like to use it to chat on skype


If the Bluetooth adapter can detect the phone but not the Plantronics headpiece, then there's no problem with your computer or your Bluetooth adapter. The problem has something to do with the Plantronics.

Try to turn the headpiece off, then turn it back on. Set it to discovery mode, then try to detect it using your computer. If that did not help.

Try to detect the Plantronics, using your phone. That will help you in isolating the problem.

Aside from that, make sure that no possible wireless interference while you're searching for the headpiece. Cell phone, base of the cordless phone should be away from the computer while you're searching for the headpiece. Because Bluetooth and cellphones/cordless phones are running on the same 2.4GHz frequency RF signal. They might interfere with each other.

Good luck!

Have a usb100 wireless adaptor that is not loading and giving me error the hardware may not be working properley - i need to find out if it is the hardware


Install the USB DEVICE on another computer to make sure it is not the USB PORTS themselves.
If you have the same issue then you know it is the device itself and NOT the USB PORTS.

My case logic optical mouse will not link up


Is this a wired or wireless mouse?

If this is a wired mouse, try connecting it into different USB port or different computer so that you would know if there's a problem with the USB ports or with the computer or with the mouse.

If this is wireless, try the following:

1. Replace the batteries of the mouse.
2. Make sure that the mouse is turned ON.
3. Try connecting the USB wireless adapter of the mouse into different USB ports.
4. Connect also the adapter into different computer.
5. Make sure that there's no interference between the adapter and the mouse such as wireless phones, cell phones and other wireless devices.

Wireless mouse, cordless phones and cellphones are all running at 2.4Ghz frequency, so if there's a wireless device that's running on the same wireless freq, then it would interfere with the mouse that would cause the mouse not to work.

If same problem occurs after checking everything, then contact the manufacturer of the mouse for RMA (repair).

Have a great day!

Wireless adapter connects at 54mb but drops to 1mb w/any dataload


Usually, a device will renegotiate a slower speed to compensate for interference. slower speeds are sometimes the most reliable. Its possible to change your wifi channels and try to get one that has less interference, and maintain a stronger signal. You might also want to ensure that any cordless phones in your area are NOT on the same frequency range as your router, because as soon as "Old Great Aunt Mildred" calls you or your neighbor, your wifi goes bye bye.

How do i get my router unsecured for wireless network


Hai,
Just give them the password, so that they can connect to the network. That's all you have to do, if you open it, then everyone will be able to get access.

This is how we have it setup at my house, anytime anyone new comes into the house, we give them the password/keycode so they can connect to the network.

Keeps dropping the Wireless network


If you have 2.4 GHz phone in your house, it might interfere with your wireless network. Switch all your cordless phones to 5.8 or higher.
