      Wireless Troubles

      Hi, new to the forum and probably about to ask a common question - sorry!

      I'd been connecting fine wirelessly with all the standard Sky kit (netgear router and USB dongle).

      We then ordered a new set of digital cordless phones which lo and behold now mean we can't stay connected to the wireless network!

      I've tried changing the channel on the router but no use.

      Any other suggestions that could make other than turning all the phones off or connecting via the ethernet (nearest phone socket 10m away!).

      Not mega-techie, so keep it simple!

      Re: Wireless Troubles

      The cordless phone probably has a choice of channels -- see if the manual indicates what frequencies these refer to. Download the user manual for the DG834GT router from the maker (Netgear) and see if by comparing the frequencies you can find channels which don't clash.

      In the end you may have relocate the cordless phone base -- which probably involves adding phone wiring and, ideally, a new master socket designed to isolate your ADSL from the rest of your phone wiring (see suppliers ADSL Nation and Maplin).
