The only way to increase the range on a cordless phone is to improve the antenna system. Since the antenna is in the base, the easiest thing to do is move the base to a better location, as high as possible. If that is not possible, you can go to any radio repair shop and ask them to open the base and solder an external antenna connector to it. Mine was done for five dollars. Then buy an external high gain antenna of the correct frequency and place it as high as possible in an area free of obstructions. This will improve your range by between 10 and 50 percent. The simplest way is to Google long range phones and make sure you find one at 900 mhz which is a legal frequency. The other phones are illegal in North America because of their potential to interfere with frequencies on such bands as police and fire and amateur. Also, make sure it does not put out more than one watt, (still 10x the power of the average cordless phone). The Engenius is probably the best cordless phone which is legal in Canada and the US but it can get pretty expensive. There is no easy way to do it. I consider myself an expert because I have been researching the issue for many months. I recently bought an ATTCL82209. With the base in a good position with clear line of sight, mine gives me a range of 525 yards which is almost a third of a mile. With an external antenna I have obtained 800 metres which is half a mile. But an urban environment has so many obstacles and variations that consistent long range with any phone is impossible. There is a reason why so many people pay exhorbitant monthly fees to use a cellphone, cellphones are the only real solution to urban communication problems, and the cell providers know it. If you are in Canada, www.3centcell.com, might be a viable solution. Trust me, I know my stuff, I have spent months researching every possible angle.

Is your base near a computer or other electronics? Also, make sure your microwave is not on. I get static if I do any of those things.

SOURCE: Wifi interference??
The short answer is that it could interfere with the wi-fi, but your wi-fi should not interfere with your phone because it uses WDECT, "wide-band digitally enhanced cordless telecommunications" engineering. No matter how tight the bandwidth is on any RF transmission, power, proximity, and harmonics all play a roll. Ideally we want the power from our transmission to occupy the target frequency but the reality in RF is that this is nearly impossible without DSP filters. I have pasted some extra info below to help answer this question.
Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT), known as Digital European Cordless Telephone until 1995, is an ETSI standard for digital portable phones (cordless home telephones), commonly used for domestic or corporate purposes. It is recognised by the ITU as fulfilling the IMT-2000 requirements and thus qualifies as a 3G system.
The four most common frequencies today are 900MHz, 2.4GHz, 5.8GHz and DECT 6.0:
900 MHz Currentlythe most common frequency for cordless phones, 900MHz phones may offera greater range than other frequencies. However, the 900MHz spectrum iscluttered and may result in interference with baby monitors and other900MHz cordless phones. Radio scanners can also easily pick up thisband. 2.4 GHz 2.4GHzphones offer better clarity and security than 900MHz, but mayexperience some interference with microwave ovens and wirelessnetworking (wi-fi) products. 5.8 GHz Themost advanced cordless phones available, 5.8GHz phones transmit on anew, open frequency and have the least chance for interference. Theywill not interfere with wireless networking (wi-fi) products. DECT 6.0 DECT6.0 operates on the 1.9GHz frequency. Though newly approved in the US,this frequency has been used for many years in Europe and can increasecall clarity and security. The wi-fi friendly DECT technology easilyintegrates into homes with wi-fi and internet services because the1.9GHz frequency is exclusive to DECT, making it interference free forcordless communications.

With the phone in standby, press and hold [dnd] on the base. You will hear a confirmation tone and the [dnd] LED will go out.
