Re: Does anyone know why my wireless devices disconnect when my landline rings.

whinnies,

 

     One possibility that comes to mind is if you have a cordless phone that is operating on the same channel, you might try changing the channel on your modem. Another issue is a possible home alarm wired on the same line?
