      Cordless telephone

      Hi,
      Please don't have a go at me about starting another cordless phone thread lol. I have read most (or all) of the threads that involve cordless phones. I am using the netgear router with wireless connections and yes I do suffer dropouts when the cordless phome is being used. What I would like to know, is when you say move the cordless phone away from the router (without saying as far away as possible), what sort of distance between router and cordless phone would make a difference. Would it be much better if I moved the phone to the other side of a standard sized living room, or are we talking about a greater distance here. Also, I am aware of line noise when using extension wires with the router. However, will using an extension line on the phone (after the filter) add any noise to me broadband, or will the filter prevent the extension wire from affecting my connection. I ask this, as I am thinking of moving the phone to another room, but I would need to use an extension cable to do so. Any advice will be very welcome.
      Many thanks
      Ian

      Using an extension on a phone will do no harm at all, it is when a phone extension is used to run a router that you will have problems. Move your phone as far from the router as possible, within reason.It is not possible to say move it X metres.
      Remember everything connected to the phone line must run through a filter, unless you have a filtered faceplate.

      Thanks for your reply Isitme. I thought that would be the case, but didn't want to start moving the phone only to find that I had introduced a new problem.

      Try changing the Router's WiFi Channel - it may solve the problem without needing to move the DECT phone (just move it as far away as you can in it's current location). I have two DECT phones on different channels within 1 metre of my Router and don't have a problem.
