Could a cheap wireless phone be my problem?

So I have had a problem that has been plaguing me for months - My router keeps disconnecting from the internet. Happens quite often, but I just noticed that it also cut out when the phone was picked up as someone was phoning.


Could the problem be because its a crappy cordless phone? Interestingly enough, it is a cordless phone (plugged into the OLD STYLE master socket) with a second handset, NOT plugged into a phone socket (ie it communicates wirelessly with the handset and its little wee dock in the upstairs bedroom.) Could this be the problem?



Had line tested, there was one fault apparently at the exchange (which affected many, not just me) but thats sorted now.


Stats from router for casual reading:

Re: Could a cheap wireless phone be my problem?

Provided it is connected via a microfilter, it should not affect the broadband.
I had a similar problem, and ended up connecting two microfilters in series with the base station unit.
