    I have installed the above router at my home. The problem is that when i connect it my cordless phone stops working. The line is constantly busy. I have tried another cordless phone and it still happens. I have tried a corded phone and that works fine. I have also tried disabling the wireless and the problem still occurs. It works fine with a usb modem. I just wondered if anyone else has had the same problem before i go out and buy a new router and get the same problem. any help will be gratefully appreciated.

    I assume this is a 2.4 GHz phone?

    Ive never heard of this causing a "busy signal", but interferance is common since they use many of the same frequencies. I would recomend getting a non 2.4 GHz cordless phone.

    Does the changing of the frequency on router work then? My ISP told me flat that cordless + broadband = interference.

    Just took this for granted back then, but have had to look into using the wag54g for more reasons than having to share an internet connection on a LAN and wirelessly, and see that there's a lot to learn 8O
