If you have your wireless secured you will need the security code you typed in when setting up your router.

Will your internet box interfear with a cordless phone if they are to close together ?


A wireless router and wireless network adapters can have interference issues with cordless phones. It depends on the network adapter frequency and the cordless phone's frequency. Most problems will occur with a phone that uses 2.4GHz. This frequency will interfere with 802.11b/g networks and single-band 802.11n wireless signals.

A DECT cordless phone operates at a different frequency from the 802.11g and 802.11n single-band and will not interfere with a wi-fi network with those modes.

However, some routers and wireless adapters can use the 5GHz range (802.11n and 802.11ac, among them). These can have a problem with cordless phones that use 5.8GHz. However, there is a simple solution to avoid much of the interference at 5GHz. First determine the frequency range of your phone by getting the FCC ID from the base of the phone. Then use Google or another search engine to find "FCC ID Search Form". It has been at http://transition.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid/ in the past. The first three characters are the Grantee ID for the search form. The rest is the product ID. Look for the SAR report for the phone and then (probably on the second page) find the TX frequency range and the Max RF output power tested. Now go to the wireless router's setting page and make sure that it is using channels that do not use the same frequency and power range. See http://bradsfavorite.com/avoid-interference-5-ghz-wifi-5-8-ghz-cordless-phones/ below the 5GHz Wifi Frequencies for a table with the channel and frequency ranges for routers.

Once everything is clear, you can visit ScanmySpeed.com and have an internet speed test to ensure that there is no disturbance in your connection.

We have a set of 5 Uniden PowerMax 5.8 phones. The original set came with 3 phones, and we added two others. We have a lot of problems with bad quality on our phone calls. Sometimes we get a sound like...

  • 1. Delete the configured wireless connection if you already have one
  • 2. Enable WiFi but do not perform a search at the moment
  • 3. Open the browser, select Settings > Browser profiles and press "Search for WiFi"
  • 4. Select the connection that you want to connect to and type the details that match the settings on the router
    • Auth type = WPA
    • Encryption = TKIP
    • Network key = router pre-shared key
    • Protocol = HTTP
    • Home URL = address of modem (you can change it later if everything is already working)
    • Leave proxy blank
    • Linger = default
    • Adhoc = off
    • There is no need to change the advanced settings
  • 5. Save the settings but do not connect yet
  • 6. Exit the browser, go to WiFi and select the connection that you have just configured
  • 7. Check all the settings are OK
    • If the channel is different to the one set on the router, adjust it on the router to match the one used by the phone
  • 8. Activate the selected connection and try browsing the internet
That should get everything working. This applies only to personal wireless networks.

Hello Jane,

When using a Wi-Fi network with your iPhone, you may occasionally encounter the following issues,Unable to locate or join a nearby Wi-Fi network,Weak or low Wi-Fi signal strength,Connected to Wi-Fi network, but unable to access the Internet.
Tap Settings > Wi-Fi and turn Wi-Fi off and then on again. Verify that you are in range of your Wi-Fi router or base station. Confirm that your Wi-Fi router and Cable/DSL modem are connected to power and turned on. Check whether other devices (portable computers, for example) are able to connect to the Wi-Fi network and access the Internet. Update your Wi-Fi router to the latest firmware.

My phone cuts off laptop wireless


Wifi typically operates in the 2.412Ghz - 2.472 Ghz depending on the channel selected. ideally the Wifi modem/router and the DECT phone should be operating in completely different bandwidths.

If your DECT phone is cutting off your Wifi wireless connection, then they must me operating in similar/same range: you need to change either your Wifi or DECT frequency 'channel' to minimize this interference.
Also make sure that there is a least 3 meters between the DECT base station and your Wifi modem/router to eliminate Transceivers static RF/EMF interference.

Hope it helps: let me know how you go.

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.

In order to get the internet on your iphone you would need (i am assuming you are taking about an iphone) You would either need to connect it wireless to a wireless router or purchase the data plan from your phone service provider.

I'm trying to download songs to my iphone and it says I must connect to a WiFi network. How do I do this? I tried following the steps on the screen but I'm at a loss when it says choose a network and it...


Hi,
In order to connect to a WiFi network, you must be in the range of a WiFi network to which you are authorized access, or is completely unlocked. If you have a wireless router for your home internet you will be able to connect to that network by finding its name in the list of available networks and putting in the correct password, or no password if you haven't set one for your network. GSsecure08 is most likely one of your neighbors' networks, and that neighbor most likely has a password that you don't know, so you won't be able to access that network. When looking through the list of available networks, ones with a lock next to them will require a password. No lock means you are free to access it, although there is no guarantee how secure your data is as you are using someone else's internet connection. If you can't find a network in your house, many coffee shops offer free or cheap WiFi. Otherwise, buy the songs in iTunes on your computer and sync to your iPhone.
Hope that helped,
Colin

5808 drops call and starts searching for base


Got a wireless router? Change channels on the router off Ch6, the default channel and that may help your phone communication to the base station. I have had wireless phone customers lose their wifi when their phone rings, same frequency or intereference on that frequency.
