    Every time my phone rings my wifi signal temporarily disconnects. I use Verizon Fios and my router is a Actiontec MI424WR , the phone that is doing this is a Vtech 2.4GHz model 2428. I've tried changing the channel on the phone but cant seem to get it to change. I dont have a control panel on the main pc to control the router so I can't change the router channel at the moment. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thnx in advance.

    Actually, you change the channel of the Actiontec router by logging into the router's web based configuration. If you have a connection to the router, you have the "control panel" to change the channel.

    Well, I have two connections. Wow I'm a noob, where would I find the control panel? I have searched and cannot find any options for it as no software was loaded during installation of the router and internet to my knowledge.

    Open a command prompt and type IPCONFIG

    The address of the Default Gateway is the base address of the router. Enter that IP address into the address bar of IE and you will access the web based setup for the router.
