    Be wary as these phones do operate on the same frequency as a wireless network does (all except the rare 802.11a anyways). They can cause interference and vice versa.

    If you have a wireless network in your home, it is better to go with a 5.8ghz phone.

    Or, you could just change the channel on your wireless router.. but that may be too complicated for some people.

    Changing the channel doesn't change the frequency range in which they operate. Wireless routers are just one of the many things that can cause interference on 2.4ghz devices.

    I have previouse version of this phone (which also has same system, and same frequency.) but never had problem.

    Something working in 2.4GHz does not necessarily mean it will interfear with Wireless Network.
    If you put it that way, your wireless phone will interfear with your neighbor's wireless phone. Your cell phone will interfear with other cell phones. And Wi-Fi will interfear with other near by Wi-Fi network.

    Something like these actually could happen, but not very often. It is because they do operate in different channel. 2.4GHz is not the exact frequency that devices work at. 2.4GHz is base frequency and it is devided into smaller ranges which we call channels. (In case of Wi-Fi I believe it is 5MHz between channels)
    Wireless signals do get interference and lose signal time to time. To solve this issue, WiFi has way to handle errors.

    You may not directly notice the interference. It isn't a matter of being able to connect and not being able to. It can affect speeds for wireless networks and the quality of the call.

    This just happened to me, but after changing the channel select button on the phone, the wireless came right back. Just not sure that one chance in ten that the phone rings, I may have to give up wireless access.
