    If you have an 802.11b or 802.11g router then you must get a cordless phone that doesn't use the same frequency range (2400MHz). My sister had this problem, network flattened whenever the phone was in any sort of use. I heard about this before getting a 2400MHz phone and continued to use the old 900MHz until I found a decent 5.8GHz, skipping the 2400MHz models. My Microwave also severely interferes with my wireless routers when it is running but it never runs all that long so not such a big deal.

    change different channel

    You don't have to switch to a 900 mhz phone;all you have to do is to go into wireless setup of router and switch to a different channel. Most like he is using channel 6, switch to channel 11 or 1 should be able to fix it.

    In limited instances changing channels will work, gets into harmonics of frequencies which we wont get into now. Just know that this is a big issue when using phones on the same frequency band as your router, and spread spectrum phones are the worst. What i did and it may work for you is to let my phone battery life get down to about half. When it was half or less no issue, full charge no matter where i was in the house, wireless died. As stated a phone in the 5.8 band will be the best (feature and range wise) and will make the headache of dropped wireless go away.
