What is the output frequency of the Netgear WGT624? By any chance, is it 2.4 GHZ?

Whenever my cordless phone (2.4 GHZ) rings, my wireless connection is broken. Could the telephone and the router be on the same frequency?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The short answer is YES.

The wireless router uses 2.4GHz (see the specs on the manufacturer’s website – http://www.netgear.com/Products/RoutersandGateways/SuperGWirelessRouters/WGT624.aspx?detail=Specifications) and so does your phone (from what you said).

As the previous answer says, your best choice is to get a different phone. DECT would be my choice, as this uses different frequencies, and is almost totally immune from interference, so they will co-exist happily. (and throw the old phone away !)

    You can also try using the features of the phone to move it to a different channel within the frequency. This may help.
