Is my cordless 2.4 ghz phone knocking out my router

by giper / December 19, 2007 9:06 AM PST

Is my Panasonic cordless 2.4 ghz phone knocking out my Linksys Wireless G router? When ever I use my phone my wireless router will no longer work, ie I can no longer connect to the internet wirelessly. Is it my phone, do I need to buy a new 5.4 ghz phone? Anyone else experiencing this problem.
