I have successfully conected my wireless router to my laptop. However, whenever I use my cordless phones my wireless connection is broken. I beleive that I should be able to change the channel on my router, but can't find a way to do it.

if you are using wireless cordless phone next to your Router it will interfere with your wireless it reduces the signal so i will suggest you to move your cordless phone to somewhere else but of course it will still have effect on your connection ,most cordless phones and wireless routers operates in same Baseband its inteferance.. your microwave also effects your wireless .. i hope that will help your problem.
if it is a 2.4 giga hertz router, then make sure the router or laptop are away from cordless phones or microwave ovens, as most of these operate near the same frequency. Also, double check the wireless settings on both the router and laptop to make sure both are the same. Hope this helps!
Try changing the channel that the router uses. This will be a setting in the GUI. I have a Netgear wireless router and if I let the router choose the channel to use, it always chooses the same channel that my cordless phone uses so whenever I use the cordless phone, I get kicked off. You can also try updating the firmware on the router but I'd bet trying a different channel(s) will work.
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.
