    2.4ghz phone? Could just be interference with your wireless router.

    Nope.. 5.4ghz phones only here...

    802.11a runs around 5ghz, all else uses 2.4ghz... You might want to go into your wireless router settings and change the channel to 1 or 11, if that still doesn't work, try channel 6.

    Let me know how that works out.

    802.11b and 802.11g both use the 2.4ghz range, which is the same as many cordless phones. I used to get kicked off my wireless connection all the time when someone used the phone until I bought my own place.

    Basically, the phones and Wii are trying to use the same airwaves.

    It will help, but there you may still get the boot every once in a while.

    No, it'll be better with that. Or, you can get a 900Mhz phone.

    As others are saying, 802.11b/g use a 2.4Ghz range as described here: http://www.qsl.net/n9zia/dsss-channels.html

    You can try switching the channel on your wireless router to see which one will "fix" the issue. There is no reason you can't use any of the available channels, 1-11. If that doesn't work, get rid of any other 2.4Ghz devices in your house. This can include baby monitors too. We bought a 900Mhz baby monitor specifically so it wouldn't interfere with the wireless network.

    Microwave ovens also disrupt wireless.
