I have Comcast cable internet why does the phone interrupt it at times?
wireless router + cordless phone?
it's cable internet. It's a shared network, and you are subject to traffic at the time of the call. as a result, cable phone can be very unreliable.
Yup, but it doesn't always do it, phone location doesn't seem to matter either.
No, they should have QoS to prevent this, right?
Call the cable company. Complain.
QoS helps.... but nothing can prevent outright saturation or outage. Furthermore, fluctuations in latency cause jitter which is one of the larger problems with consumer-grade voip.
Wait, why can't QoS prevent outright saturation? Thats its job.
Try changing the channel in the router configuration, or replace the phone with something that doesn't operate in the 2.4GHz range.
because within each node the QoS is worthless. Not all modems will support it properly, and some support it more than others. So just like cable has always been, a few people can ruin it for the rest.
As an example, this is the diff between a Motorola 5101 and 5121.
Oh Lucy, you got some splainin to do
wifi supports 11+ channels.
I use to have this problem. I had a 2.4ghz phone + 2.4ghz wireless router, when anyone made a phone call, all the computers on the WiFi got kicked off. So I plugged in my old 900Mhz phone and everything seemed to run perfectly fine.
And how do I change this?
replace user, change channel?
seriously tho, are you joking? I mean have you even TRIED to look in the router config? Have you even briefly glanced at the manual?
