Question about Uniden E26060 DSS Cordless Phone

1 Answer

Could our phones cause wireless internet connection problems?

I am having problems with my Mac laptop's wireless internet connection. My signal is constantly wavering, even when I am working in the room with the D-link router. I have a wireless phone on my desk as well and 3 more throughout the house.
Apple support has suggested the phones are adding too much interference.

    Should I know immediately after unplugging all the phones or are the charged phones still emitting a signal?

Yes, most wireless routers and laptop wireless connections operate in the 2.4GHz band... the same band that most cordless phones are in.

Even bluetooth is in the same band.

If you turn your all cordless phones off (including the main base unit) and the interference disappears, then the solution is to change your phones to ones which operate in the 5.8GHz band.

Failed to connect to the internet


what kind of phone do you have and is it hooked up to a wireless network or is it from your phone provider. if it is from a wireless network then your router may be turned off or you are to far away from the signal area. if you get from your phone provider then you may not have enough signal or you may be out of your covered area. let me know if you need help or more detailed instructions.

When i use this phone while using my laptop computer, people say "you're breaking up" or "i cant hear you" when I can hear everyone else talking. i am sitting across the room from the internet wireless...


its not the router thats the problem or you would always be having interfierence, its most likely the signals given off by your laptop.. sometimes for whatever reason the 2 types of waves in the air decide to cancel eachother out and those bringing the signal to your phone are being ubstructed.. best solution is to either use a different phone or not use the laptop while on the phone, to rule out some of it you could try turning off your laptop's wireless while having phone issues to see if reception gets any better...

Very bad stati on ge cordless phone


Often static is caused by RF or EM interference. The interference may be getting into the system though the power or telephone signal cable being near many other cables, or because the unit is situated next to a strong source of RF or EM field.

I recommend changing the location of your cordless phone, away from such noisy sources (microwave, router, DC charging adapters, computers, etc). Try the phone in an outlet that has nothing else on the circuit, if possible.

I hope that helps.

Constant static and noise on the cordless, have not had this problem with other phones in the same location. I have tried the frequency scan- no difference. The noise is so bad the cordless cannot be used.


The main causes of Hissing Noise on phone line

* Weather:
Precipitation can leak into phone lines and cause disruptions. Lightning, even at a distance, can damage the connection.
Checked the connections the cable and the Sockets
If you have the Test socket or the First Socket where the Telephone is is entering .. check the Connections there

* Electrical interference:
Check the Power lines,
Check radio or television transmitters, transformers and other electronic devices may causing noise on the phone line.

* Other phone devices:
Check for the Connection to the FAX check by unpluging the FAX Machine or answering machines,
Disconnect the other phones and line splitters --
Disconnect the Splitters or devices that allow two phones to fit on one phone jack -- can cause phone line noise.

* DSL services:
The high-frequency signals coming from DSL (digital subscriber line) devices sharing the phone line can create problems for other technology connected to the line.
Note : high-frequency signals coming from DSL helps for FAST Internet Connection speed which sometime cause the problem to the Phone or Voice signals for this need to contact to ISP to check the Voice margin .. that may effect your internet Speed

IF the above wont work..

You can try keeping the device near Heater .. it could be the Moisture which might causing this issue
or
Show the Device to the Service provider to repair it

Using home phone causes comcast wireless internet to disconnect


Wireless internet runs at 2.4ghz. Your portable phone is probably also 2.4ghz and is knocking out your internet connection when in use. Look for an 800mhz or 5.8ghz phone as a replacement.

Phone trying to connect to the base but cannot


You possibly have a Mhz signal conflict with another appliance in your home or in another 'apartment' if you live in a complex.  If not, there is a similar or identical signal (with the same Mhz listed on your phone in your home from another appliance trying to use the same frequency) interfering, like a router or router/modem for wireless internet.  I had a similar problem when I had a wireless home phone not connecting to the base and would not call, stay connected or code right with the base.  I used a Linksys router to connect to an AT&T modem and nothing matched. Until I got AT&T to upgrade me to their "2wire" router/modem combination built in and my wireless internet problem was solved.  But, the V-Tech phone lost it's ability to connect or operate properly after that, even with a new battery.  We scrapped the wireless base and phone and now stay wired, also an option.

Interference on cordless Panasonic phone


The wireless signal is most likely your culprit. Wireless-B and Wireless-G signals operate at 2.4GHz frequency, which is the same that many cordless phones use.

Some wireless routers will allow you to change the channel that they broadcast on -- that might help your interference problem slightly, but it probably won't make it go away completely. Your best bet is to keep the cordless phone a good distance away from the computer and wireless router (if not in another room, at least on the other side of the room).

Hope that helps!

When the cordless phone is in use the internet on the laptop cuts out can anyone help


Assuming you have DSL - Verify that you have a DSL filter in the phone line that leads to the base unit of the cordless phone.
Assuming your laptop connection is wireless - See if there is a frequency conflict with your wireless internet and the cordless phone.
If neither of these suggestions help, please reply with specific details regarding your internet connection (Cable/DSL) and the connection of the laptop

2.4GHz cordless phone interference with my laptop


The 2.4 spectrum only has 3 channels that don't overlap. There are a total of 14 channels in all. Channels 1,6,11 don't overlap with other devices. Set your wireless access point to 6 (strongest channel) and your phone to another non-overlapping channel (1, 11). That should solve your problem. If it does not, then one of the devices you have is not digitally tuned and is causing interference on neighboring channels. The proximity of the phone's base station in relation to the wireless access point or laptop can also have an effect especially if the spectrum is dirty. Hope this helps!
