From the sound of this it seems like you have a DSL internet connection. If this is the case then you need to have the DSL filters on every phone jack in the house that has a phone attached to it. these filters seperate the DSL signal from the voice/fax signal on the line. If you do not have the filters installed the DSL signal basically gets cut off by the voice signal.

If you do not have any filters you can get them at Radio Shack or maybe Best Buy, but be warned they usually are not cheap.

Hope this helps

    Update, it also might be that your are runing wireless G (2.4GHz) and cordless phones also use that same freq. So basically when the phone rings the signal fromteh phone is over riding your wireless signal because it is a lot stronger then the wireless routers signal. You could try moving teh router and phone farther apart and see if that helps.

How to fix wifi disconnect when cordless phone rings


If you are using DSL, you most likely do not have your line split between the internet and phone. At that point, you need to find the filtering devices provided with your DSL modem and connect one phone line from the phone slot to the cordless phone jack, then connect another phone line from the internet slot to your DSL modem.

The reason why your experiencing that problem was the cordless phone and the router that youre using has the same 2.4Gz frequency.So everytime the phone rings it interupts the wireless signal what i can suggest is if the phone is in between the computer and the router or if the phone is near the router move it away so that it wont interfere the wireless signal


Thanks for using Fixya.

Drops connection


1. Your router may have lost the IP address from the ISP (Internet Service Provider)
2. go into the router using the 192.168.0.1 IP address to check the status of the router. This will tell you if you have lost connection with the service provider.
3. Call your ISP to verify connectivity. There may have been a line interruption.
4. check with the router manufacturer for router firmware updates.
5. If your router is older it may be at what is call "end- of - life" and may longer be serviceable by the manufacturer.
6. You also may want to try moving the router to a spot away from electronic devices such as TV'S, cell phone, cordless phone bases, and microwave ovens. These device send signal that are on the same frequency as the router and may have an affect on your connectivty. This also may account for connectivity drops.

I have a belkin router, cordless phone interferce


cordless phones and wireless routers transmit on the same frequency. Move the router away from the cordless phone if it's near, if not try changing the channel on your belkin router

Now if your WIRELESS connection drops, when the phone rings it's usually because of this:

You have a cordless phone in your house that is using the same channel as your wireless router. Now routers are generally quite different so there's no one way to fix this. Just look up your make and model of modem on Google and find out how to change the channel on your modem. It's pretty straight forward and not very time consuming to fix.
Also one thing to note is that you shouldn't automatically jump to the highest channel that you can because your wireless card may not be able to go that high.

I need to change the channel on my dlink 625 router..can u help?


I presume it's a cordless phone? If so, it's possible that it's interfering with the wireless signal. If that happens you will see the wireless connection being dropped - go into the wifi config utility and check how good the connection is. If this is the case, changing the channel may help. To do that,bring the router over to your PC and connect with an ethernet cable (just in case something goes wrong with the channel change and you lose the wireless signal.).

You need to find the "router homepage" in your web browser. If you don't know what it is, in windows click start -> run -> type "cmd" and press enter. In the command screen that pops up type "ipconfig" and press enter. It'll show you a few things. One should say "Default Gateway" followed by numbers.Write those numbers down (probably will be something like 192.168.1.254).

Open your web browser (IE, Firefox etc...) and enter the numbers. This will bring you to the router page. There should be an option like "Wireless" and under there you should see "change channel". It may be in the advanced option window.


IF your computer is NOT dropping the wireless signal when the phone rings, but the internet connection does drop - check the DSL signal light on your dlink. If it is flashing or not on, then the problem is with the DSL filters (small white connectors sent with your modem.). Always ensure any phone on the same line as the DSL is filtered or it will cause the internet connection to drop whenever the phone rings or is picked up.

Internet drops out when phone rings


First I'll assume that you have wireless broadband internet access. In which case the interruption is caused by your cordless phone. Cordless phones are usually 2.4 Ghz now and so are routers. Operating on the same frequency causes interference between them. Get a phone that is not 2.4 Ghz.

If you have dial-up internet access, then this is most likely caused by your dial-up connection being interrupted. Any time someone tries to call you this will happen unless you call your phone company and they can help you take the proper steps to make sure that this doesn't happen (usually that means they'll tell you how to disable call waiting).
