Coreless phone issues with this router

Hae a GE Dect 6.0 cordless phone (Model 28112ee2) set up with this router MODel WNR834B). Phone runs on 1.9ghz, router on 2.4ghz. Since the router has been installed, any incomming calls are usually disconnected after 1 ring with alot of static. I have had 2 phone calls come through in a week. All phones have filters. All filters have been changed. The closest base to the router is a floor above, however, almost directly above the router. I thought with the difference in frequency I shouldn't be having this problem? I really don't want to go buy a new set of phones, and need a strong enough router to go up 3 floors. Outgoing calls are fine, and when I reset the cordeless hand sets, I can call in for about 20 mins. Then I get disconnected again. Driving me nuts. Anyything short of taking a hammer to everything would be helpful. Cheers.

When on a cordless phone connection to internet is lost with wireless internet

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.)

There could be a number of things going on. I'll list some of them that you might check:
  1. Your wireless network does not have security enabled, and your neighbors are using it to download files using P2P networks. These P2P network connections are crashing your router. In order to resolve this issue, enable WPA or WPA2 security on your router per the user manual.
  2. One of the filters on your phone line has been removed or is failing and needs to be replace. Remove each filter on each line one-by-one and run your Internet connection for a while to see if it fails. Do this one-by-one for each filter.
  3. You recently started using 2.4GHz cordless phones in your home. Get rid of these cordless phones and buy DECT 6.0 compliant cordless phones that use a different radio frequency.
Hopefully one of these suggestions will fix your issue.
Good Luck

Can the d-link dir-615 interfere with the telephone?

It can interfere with cordless phones. It won't with a wired phone.

The cordless phones operate in the same frequency band so sometimes they wil interfer a bit. What will hapeen is the voice or sound quality won;t be as clear or if real bad it will drop calls. The 2.4 and 5.8 ghz phones can have problems with the wifi and the microwave.

The newest Dect 6.0 style phones are designed to be immune from both microwave and wifi interferance. We went through a series of phones at home before we found out about the DECT 6.0 types and all of our problems went away.

Problems with our wireless devices connecting to the netgear

Do you have a cordless phone in the area transmitting at 2.4megahertz?
If you do, that is what is breaking your connection. I found this out by accident.

I have a belkin router, cordless phone interferce

cordless phones and wireless routers transmit on the same frequency. Move the router away from the cordless phone if it's near, if not try changing the channel on your belkin router

Now if your WIRELESS connection drops, when the phone rings it's usually because of this:

You have a cordless phone in your house that is using the same channel as your wireless router. Now routers are generally quite different so there's no one way to fix this. Just look up your make and model of modem on Google and find out how to change the channel on your modem. It's pretty straight forward and not very time consuming to fix.
Also one thing to note is that you shouldn't automatically jump to the highest channel that you can because your wireless card may not be able to go that high.

Everytime the phone rings my wireless connection goes away. I am also unable to secure this network. the model number is f5d8235 4

Your phone is using the same frequency as the wireless router (2.4GHz). It would be very difficult to prevent this unless you change:

1. Phone to corded system.
2. Change phone to cordless DECT (5.8GHz) system
3. Change network router from "G" series to "N" series.

I have a problem I just bought GE 2.4 GHZ phone

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 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.

Conflict between wireless router and cordless phone

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

good luck :)

Msg. conntected with limited access

Try this.

Unplug the Router.
Unplug the modem.
Wait about 15-20 secs.
Reconnect the modem.
wait about a minute or until all the lights are solid on the display.
Reconnect the Router.
Wait about another minute until everything is given time to start up.
Try connecting again.

If it still does that, it may be a problem with your computer that your trying to access with wirelessly.

My mother had that problem on one of her laptops, it turned out that her particular installation didn't support WPA or WEP incryption. I did a full reinstall and now it works.

If you want to avoid a full reinstall you can try uninstalling the wireless network card, then reinstalling it.(Make sure you go to your manufacturers web site first to download the proper driver for your model)

I hope this helps,
