laptop loses connection when phone rings

  Garthyy 16:14 28 Dec 2008

I have a linksys wag160n which seems to work but every so often the signal is jammed. I noticed it did it when my dect phone rang but also randomly. I have tried different channels but no joy - I have to break the connection then reconnect to continue. I never had this problem with my old netgear, does anyone have a list of which frequency different routers use in 2.2ghz range as I am using 802.g.

have you got microfilters on all sockets with equipment connected? I was called to a premises with this exact problem and a sky box was plugged into an extension without a filter. Once connected with the filter the problem disappeared.
