    i'm new to wireless networking. basically i only know the book knowledge and not much practical experience.
    anyways, basic question....

    will a 802.11b wireless device running at 2.4ghz interfere with my cordless phone which too runs at 2.4ghz?

    the two devices won't be in the same room but i do tend to carry the cordless phone around the house alot.

    Panasonic phones seem to be pretty good

    I have a panasonic 2.4 ghz phone (model is a 2382.) that I use sitting next to my wireless router, with my wireless laptop and I haven't seen any issues with signal or noise..

    Don't know if that helps...

    it helps. that's at least one person that doesn't have problems.
    all i really wanna know is how bad can the interference between two 2.4ghz devices be in the same house.

    also i was reading about the linksys i'm looking at buying. it supports 11 channels. so does this mean i cant still change it to a different channel, one that my phone doesn't use and this way it will NOT interfere at all?

    I have read..

    That some phones use the same wireless chips as some of the routers.. I don't think the panasonic falls into that category.

    Yes you can change channels and in theory that should reduce or help eliminate the interference if any. Interference can cause static or internet disconnections if present..

    Think of this as a "significant other". You don't know how they will be until you get them home. So you might just have to give it a whirl and see if this significant other works with your existing system. If not, return it. :wink:
