It is highly unlikely that your router would disable your phone. Although there is a possibility it may cause static on the line.

I have a 655 router.. running windows7 on one computer on Home Network.. Router initially working OK..computer connected via cat5 wire. Disconnected router, moved to new location on desk...reconnected...


You can reset both the modem and the router by removing the power cord where it connects into the router (Called Recycling the Power) I would do it with both the modem and the router for about a full 2 minutes.
Sounds more like you have a connectivity issue from interference from something on you desk. Some known culprits are:
High Intensity Lamps Fans Radio Interference coming from your wireless phone Power strip with filters for telephone signal any other environmental issues including computer monitor. Next door neighbor's router signal bleeding through. Filter device missing from phone Filter device missing from phone line connected to you TV
Try moving the router back to the old location. Does problem go away. You are now too close to something thats breaking your signal. I can log into my neighbors access point across the street and two houses away. Signals are strong but can be blocked by a lot of things mentioned above or tin foil.

I have my router and modem on top of my frige and was wondering if thats a good spot? i heard metal can effect the wifi n the fridge is all metal


Generally the higher the wireless adapter and antenna is placed, the better the signal, however metal can cause some signal loss / interference issues for internally installed antennas. There is usually not a problem if you have an external antenna on your router and it's on top of something made of metal. Only if there is something made of metal between the router and areas in your home that your other wireless devices like a laptop are being used. Also it's a good idea to place the wireless router centrally located in your home if possible. The things that negatively affect your signal the most are obstructions (walls etc), electrical devices that cause interference like cordless phones (especially if they ooperate at the same frequencyb as your router), microwave ovens and other electrical devices that generate interference like motors in fans and such. I think if you place your router and modem on something that will raise them off the metal of your refrigerator it will minimize the effect of the metal from the fridge below them.

You might also consider purchasing a wireless amplifier / booster for your router if you're experiencing signal loss in your home or check your router setup options to see if you can increase the output through the user settings. Use a bi-directional amplifier to increase both your incoming and outgoing signal strength if you decide to go that route.

Cordless home phone interferes with my dlink connection...how do i solve this?


Definitely you will be facing interferences on your router due to cordless phones...
This is because both the devices work under same frequency (2.4Ghz)...
To avoid interference, both the devices has to be placed in a separate room, if it is not possible to place in different room then they need to be separated at least 15ft away from each other...

Improving Wireless Range: Tuning Equipment



Using the best channels has a big effect on network performance. Your goal is to choose settings that avoid interference from other networking and radio frequency equipment. (If you have 802.11a or 802.11a/g, channel selection is less important, skip to "Reducing Wireless Network Traffic".)
To see all your options start with: Improving Wireless Range: Overview

If you have a simple home network, and aren't close to neighbors with wireless equipment, you may be lucky enough just to choose between many channels that work well.

Complications arise when:

  • You want much better coverage than you're getting.
  • You use multiple access points or wireless routers. (Then you'll probably be using more than one channel.)
  • You aren't the only person nearby running a wireless network.

Simple Spacing of Channels

As explained in Improving Wireless Range: Overview, improving signal strength is not like adding more lights to get a brighter livingroom. Devices that transmit powerfully - such as routers, access points, and cell phone base stations - confuse one another. It's necessary to distance them and to have them use different channels.

For 802.11b and 802.11g, there are 11 channels for wireless equipment (13 channels in Europe). In the simple situation where there's little interference, you can choose any channel that works for you. When there is interference from wireless networks that overlap with one another, each network should use one of the non-overlapping channels: 1, 6, or 11 (1, 7, 13 in Europe). Then, 3 networks can use the same space with minimum interference. If you can't do that, choose channels as widely spaces as possible.
You can use a combination of access points and antennas and other equipment to create local "spotlights" of strong transmission, rather than trying to cover everywhere.

What If a Channel I Want to Use Has Too Much Noise (Interference)?

If your neighbor has a wireless network, it wouldn't be surprising that they are already using channel 1 and channel 11. Unfortunately, you can't completely avoid interference just by using other channels. Wireless protocols 802.11b and 11g only have 3 non-overlapping channels. Therefore when 4 or more channels are used in the same area, the level of interference can increase notably. If you and your close neighbor both have a router and a wireless access point, for example - which makes a total of four powerful transmitters - both of you will have a certain amount of interference.

If there's a severe problem, a practical and sociable thing is to talk to your neighbors using wireless networks that can be seen when you scan. Together, you can choose optimal channels for your respective networks. You'll want your own channels at least 5 apart. So, for example, you could use channels 1 and 8, and your neighbor could use 5 and 11.

You may be able to place routers and access points further away inside your homes. After all, the kinds of physical barriers that reduce your transmission range also reduce the signal that your neighbor doesn't want to see.
Super G technology is faster, but it uses two, non-configurable channels. Therefore it may not be possible to pick other channels that avoid its interference.

If you can use a directional antenna, or an antenna cable to shift an antenna, that can help you both. See the articles on antenna selection.

Reducing Wireless Network Traffic

When there's noise, your network performance drops, so one approach is not to stop the noise, but to reduce the amount of network data being transmitted.

In a noisy environment, it may be useful to keep part of your network wired. If Ethernet cabling isn't an option, consider NETGEAR's Powerline products - using existing home wiring instead of cables.

When SSID Broadcast is turned on, it's easiest for equipment to find the strongest signal. However this also causes network overhead. When the SSID is broadcast, your neighbor's equipment may keep a record of it, and automatically try to connect several times a second; this can cause significant performance reduction. So where there are close networks, turn off SSID Broadcast, and change the default SSID.

Turning off WEP and WPA may increase network throughput, but exposes your network to hackers. This is not recommended, except for testing purposes.

My lap top wireless signal varies from weak to good when accessing home router when connecting at home.


your signal can be affected by a lot of things from cordless phones to microwaves also the placement of your router is key, if its next to a cordless phone then chances are your going to have some interferance also the amount of space between you and the router try moving the router to a nice high location or a more central location in your home if you have 3 floors then the middle floor will work best. try those things out and see if it helps

Try to change the channel of the router. If you are using a cordless phone, you need to change it to a handset phone because that will cause interference and it will drop your internet connection

No connectivity to 2nd desktop or laptop - although worked before


Hello....sudden loss of wireless on two computers, in the same home, may indicate that a powerful source of wireless interference has just arrived (since your wireless router light is still on).

1) Does the signal improve if you move the router, or move the laptop closer to the router?
2) Have you had any success with changing the channel on your router? (Login to router > select Wireless Settings > Channel)

If you have not moved furniture yourself, or installed a device which could interfere with the signal (eg a DECT phone), it's possible a neighbour's new router may be the culprit.

Please come back to Fixya if this does not help.

Losing connection lately, and no caller ID??


Hello Kimberlynbil,

You actually have two problems here, one can be solved (but it's hard) the other might not be able to be solved at all.

First the hard (cost wise) to solve problem: Caller ID
What you can do is get a wireless phone that works in the 5 GHz range.

Now for the second problem which is why I suggested the solution to the second problem: Router cuts off phone and phone cuts off router.

This occurs because the router (wireless) and the phone wireless are using the same frequency spectrum 2.4 - 2.5 GHz. when the phone tries to communicate with the hand set the router sees this as an interference and ups its power slightly and this drops the phone call on the first ring which consequentially is the ring on which the data for caller id travels. once the phone senses the interference from the router it up is power slightly and then "steps on the router's transmission cutting off your wireless connection to your PC. So the phone and the computer are off line until one of them stops transmitting.

I hope this helps,

Shuttle83
