and now, the down side
I need a new cordless phone. Not that I'm upset about that, as the one we have is a refurb, and the LCD display hasn't worked in nearly a year. Still, it's kind of a pain that it's now useless when my wi-fi hub is powered up. Yes, a 2.4 GHz phone inexplicably experiences intense interference when a 2.4 GHz wi-fi hub is sitting right next to it. Who'da thunk it?
No, I haven't tried moving the hub - or the phone. I could try that, I suppose. Still, it's a good excuse to get a 5.8 GHz multi-handset phone. After all, that would solve two problems at once; the interference, and getting a phone for the basement (once it's finished). Right now we just turn the wi-fi off when we're not using it, and that works. It's a small price to pay to be able to post from my couch.
