I bought this 5.8GHz phone specifically to avoid interference with my 2.4GHz WLAN. However, when I make calls on the phone, my WLAN will often just die, all PCs lose their connection. If I hang up it comes back. Alternatively I just restart the WLAN and it presumably picks another frequency and works. I can't keep doing this. Why am I getting interference anyway? Thanks, Mike
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones). click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Good luck!

all Mercedes engines in my autolab timing chain book specifically state "do not turn the cam or crank" and some engines require the crank to be at 40 degrees to avoid valve/piston contact. So if you work on the idea that it is an interference engine then there would not be a problem. Changing the chain on all the various engines requires specific tools and procedures and unless you have access to these tools and specifications then it may be best to use accredited Mercedes trained service shops.
Here is some information that might help. Range can vary due to topographical and atmospheric conditions. Voice transmissions on some channels are not permitted by law.
Use in DUPLEX mode, Repeater stations can re-transmit your signal over a wider area giving you extended range depending on the location, height and availability of the local repeater station.
For information on the locations of repeater sites in your area visit the manufactures website or look-up UHF channels and frequencies for your area. Note: some channels / Frequency's are to be Avoided.
UHF Repeater operation is used when long distance communication is required, unless specifically needed use of the repeater channels is to be avoided. Some channels and emergency channels, some are calling channels for establishing communication and some are customary road vehicle channels.
You will need to look these channels up for your Area.
Other stuff on this subject on safety and safe operation. Electromagnetic Interference/Compatibility
Nearly every electronic device is susceptible to electromagnetic interference (EMI). To avoid the possibility of electromagnetic interference and/or compatibility conflicts, turn off your radio in any location where posted notices instruct you to do so such as healthcaer facilities.
You can update the Linksys Firmware to a newer version if is available, please check the Linksys support site
Another chance is to change the Wireless Channel maybe 11, to avoid any intereference with wireless phones.
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.
You can boost the signal range of a WiFi computer network in several ways:
reposition your router
(or access point) to avoid obstructions and radio interference. Both
reduce the range of WiFi network equipment. Common sources of
interference in residences include brick or plaster walls, microwave
ovens, and cordless phones. Additionally, consider changing the WiFi channel number on your equipment to avoid interference.
add another access point (or router). Large residences
typically require no more than two APs, whereas businesses may employ
dozens of APs. In a home, this option requires connecting your primary
wireless router (access point) to the second one with Ethernet cable;
home wireless routers and/or APs don't normally communicate with each
add a bi-directional WiFi signal amplifier to wireless
devices as needed. A WiFi signal amplifier (sometimes called "signal
booster") attaches to a router, access point or Wi-Fi client at the
place where the antenna connects. Bi-directional antennas amplify the
wireless signal in both transmit and receive directions. These should
be used as WiFi transmissions are two-way radio communications.
add a WiFi repeater. A wireless repeater
is a stand-alone unit positioned within range of a wireless router
(access point). Repeaters (sometimes called "range expanders") serve as
a two-way relay station for WiFi signals. Clients too far away from the
original router / AP can instead associate with the WLAN through the
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:
Move the router further away from the interfering device or object.
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.
Place the wireless router in a central location of your house, such as a family room or office.
Arrange the desktop or laptop’s wireless antenna so that it points toward the wireless router.
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.
Place your Access Point as high as possible. If your network goes
through multiple floors, try to place the Access Point on the upper
This is a very specific problem that requires a site visit to solve, there are many factors that can effect the transmission of data over a run of that length. There are many solutions to this problem, they range from rerouting the cable run to avoid sources of interference to selecting another medium such as WLAN or IrLAN. The specific implementation of the solution must be custom tailored to the situation, sometimes the solution requires equipment that is readily available on a store shevle and sometimes the solution must be engineered to accommodate the needs.
I would recommend looking at the cable route to see if it runs past any major interference makers (copiers/large office machines, industrial equipment, power equipment). Then look at the possibility of an intermediate repeater/router (protected location and availability of power outlets). Another possibility is a wireless technology, the specific technology depends on many factors. If you need high speeds or large data transfer, perhaps an Ir (Infra-red) link or WiMAX (802.16) would be best. If general purpose network connectivity is needed, then a standard 802.11 a/g WLAN will suffice. I recommend that you contact a local networking firm for a detailed consultation. Another resource that might be a better fit for most small budgets will be to contact the local college/university that has a well defined IT program to solicit members of the Alumni in a networking degree field.
Lots of different devices may be interfering with the transmit side of your phone. In today's world of heavy radio frequency usage by consumer devices it is hard to know exactly what may be interfering with your cordless phone. Even some cell phones could be causing the interference. The 6.0 gig phones do not have that problem.
