    Here's a new one. I have the Verizon FiOS Triple Play - phone, internet, TV - and for the past week or so it happens that when I'm on the landline telephone the wireless internet disconnects. Once I hang up it reconnects. Has anyone else had this happen? It isn't a major problem but still kind of weird. I don't think it used to do that.

    I guess I'll try Googling it...

    Okay, so I read a suggestion somewhere to change the channel on the router. Done. We'll see if that works.

    Wish I could delete the original post...

    Seen this many times. Your wireless phone is interfering with the wireless router. Try changing the channel your phone is operating on or get a new phone. 5.8GHz phones have never interfered with my routers.

    Last night I changed the channel on the wireless. I just called the home phone from my cell phone and the wireless connection stayed on. It may be fixed for now. We'll see how it goes.
