Strangely enough my 2.4ghz phone (made by GE) seems incapable of causing
interference with my wireless, and the lan doesn't cause any problems
with my phone (no static whatsoever) the phone has a range of just over 100
yards, and the Access Point/Phone Base station are only seperated by about
10 feet =)

Less range, more expensive.
