    Every time the phone (5.8GHz) rings, or is hung up, the Linksys router disconnects from the Internet and must be unplugged for a few seconds to reconnect. I'm going through all the different wireless channels, but so far no luck. Besides the base phone there are 2 others in other rooms.
    Anyone else have this problem and found a solution?

    I've read this complaint about Uniden somewhere before.... did you search around on the web for Uniden and WiFi?

    If DSL, I assume you have DSL line filter in place?

    There's a common problem in cordless phones of claiming to be frequency X when actually it's a hybrid. This is really common in cheap phones where only one direction of the full-duplex connection to base unit may be at the frequency marked on the box, the other direction might be something else entirely. Like 5.8GHz for base-unit->handset, then 2.4 GHz for handset->base unit. Probably be good to check the specifications for the unit closely.

    If you have a wired host, is it also affected? That would indicate something other than an RF interference issue.
