Question about Computers & Internet
Anytime anyone is on a cordless phone anywhere in the house it drops my speed drasically
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!
