Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)
I have a 2Wire 2701HG-B DSL Modem/Router connected to AT&T DSL. I have a wireless laptop, two cabled desktops and a wireless xbox connected to it. Whenever I call out on one of our 5.8 ghz cordless phones the internet light on the modem/router goes red and it drops the connection then reconnects. When I hang up the cordless phone it happens again. The central unit for the cordless phones is connected to a DSL filter on its own telephone jack in a different room from the router. It doesn't happen when I call out using a corded phone. How can I tell what frequency the network is using? Can I do something to prevent this interference?
Also try changing the wireless channels to 11 to reduce interference to 3rd party hardware such as cordless phones, and power settings should be 10 to ensure modem is broadcasting at full 400mW of power. do not put the modem near your cordless phones, and it must be sitting upright.

I fixed my own problem. I went to the system setup page for the router and changed the channel to another mghz setting. I found one that didn't conflict with the cordless phones. My son is very happy now that he doesn't get kicked out of Halo3 every time we get a phone call.
