Range extender for cordless phone
Ours behave similarly. The solution is to position the "base" (one connected to the phone lkine physically) in the center of the home so that the limited range can reach the remote phones at the periphery.
These phones operate at 1.9GHz. At that microwave frequency radio signals do not penetrate walls and floors very well. 2.4 GHz phones suffer increased "path loss" and are no better. The solution for any of these microwave phones is more transmitter power, which is illegal.
900 mHz phones actually work better because at 900 MHz nature offers less signal path loss", but try to find them in stores! For the same transmitter power level a 900MHz phones will have noticeably greater range.
The 1.9GHz D.E.C.T. phones also operate differently from other types of cordless phones and I believe that also contributes to dropped calls and the phone's inability to ring when a call arrives. At the fringe of its range you can see how it struggles to establish a link. Once established it will work well and then simply drop the call when you least expect. I am not a fan of the DECT phones, but they do not interfere with 2.4 GHz wireless routers, etc.
