    Definite yes to your question.

    Both wireless networks (802.11b and 802.11g) run on the same frequency as your 2.4 Ghz phone. If your phone and/or wireless network allows you to change channels, this should alleviate the interference somewhat. There are typicallly 11 available channels so, for example, setting your phone at channel 1 and your wireless network at channel 11 would be best. In any case, try to keep the base of your phone as far away from your router as is practical for you.

    No, shouldn't. It uses PLT comms at a much lower frequency.
