    Hello guys.

    So everytime im in my room near my computer where the router is. I lose reception and my call drops. This is the most annoying thing ever because I talk on the phone while on the comp. Its natural.

    I have a Samsung A900 by sprint.
    My router is a lynksys WRT54G.

    Is there anything about the phone specs that should cause interference or vice versa.
    Can I do anything about this? Also, should this happen or is it maybe just my phone messed up?

    Help.

    I hate to say it but the 2 are unrelated -

    Since you using EVDO and WRT54G the WRT54G is running at 2.4Ghz there isn't the interferance between the 2. Something else has to be in the ranges above to caue interferance OR you happen to have a "cell pocket" in that particular area.

    The two probably have nothing to do with each other. However, to convince yourself, take the router out of the equation and see if your calls still drop.
