Re: conflict between wireless router and cordless phone
Hi, you should try changing your wireless channel in the router setup. 1) log into your router. 2) go to the wireless setup page. 3) change the 'Wireless Channel' from auto to 1-11. 4) re-boot your router and re-connect to it. 5) use your cordless phone and see if the connection drops out. 6) repeat steps until you have a stable channel

Try changing the SSID or network name. You can also try changing channels for your wireless. If you are using a cordless phone, check the frequency of the phone. If it is 2.4 GHZ you will have to change the cordless phone and replace it with a different frequency rating.
Most wireless routers transmit over the 2.4GHz frequency, which is the same as many cordless phones. If you can, move the router or the phone so that they are far away from each other. Otherwise, the easiest thing to do is buy a cordless phone that operates on another frequency. (Most phones display their frequency on their packaging.)
i had the same problem, i ended up removing my one cordless phone that was a 2.4 ghz. and didnt have a problem. my 5.8 ghz cordless phone is still hooked up and doesn't effect it. so i suggest checking you cordless phones
1. You may have a an IP address conflict. 2. check the device connected to the router all computer need to be connected at the same time. 3. Bring all the computers up one at a time and this should resolve the address conflict.
Intermittent wireless connection can be caused by different factors, such as:
1. Wireless interference within the network. For best results, place your router: - near the center of the area in which your computers will operate. - in an elevated location such as a high shelf where the wirelessly connected computers have line-of-sight access (even if through walls). - away from sources of interference, such as microwaves, and 2.4 GHz cordless phones. - away from large metal surfaces.
2. Wireless settings on the router are still set to default. This may cause conflict with other Netgear routers within your network range. - change the router's SSID or wireless network name. - change the router's channel. - enable wireless security on the router.
3. If the wireless connection is still unstable after performing the steps above, it is possible that the firmware is corrupted. Upgrade the router's firmware.
I'm not sure if your phone has a channel selection or not, but I know your router does. This issue happens because both wireless internet and cordless phones operate on the same frequency. To change your wireless channel you need to go to your router settings which should be at 192.168.2.1 for a belkin router. To get here you simply type that number where you would normally type a web address in your browser. You enter the username and password and go to wireless settings. Under there you should see something along the lines of channel. The most common channels are 6 and 10, if your router is already on one of these, try another channel. Just keep doing this until you find a channel that your phone is not using and your router should work just fine now.
I fixed my own problem. I went to the system setup page for the router and changed the channel to another mghz setting. I found one that didn't conflict with the cordless phones. My son is very happy now that he doesn't get kicked out of Halo3 every time we get a phone call.
Since this problem happens with all devices -- and they are probably located in various places -- that rules out either the devices or physical problems (like long distances between the device and the router or thick walls). You're probably right that it is a problem on the router end of the connection.
You should definitely try replacing the router before changing the internet connection, but before you do that, you should try to see if your outages correspond to the use of either a cordless phone or microwave oven -- both of those emit radio waves on a frequency close to wireless routers. Next time you lose a connection, see if anyone's on the phone.
If that's your problem, then changing your router (or your internet service provider) won't fix it. You can switch from a 2.4 Ghz cordless phone to a 5.8 Ghz model to avoid interference. Or switch back to ethernet cables.
Your issue, of course, may be elsewhere, but I have known a number of folks whose intermittent connection problems were due to cordless phones.
