I meant to write 802.11b on my comment back there.
Where were you tonight, you weren't at the TCWUG meeting.  I brought
some laptops for you. :)

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
yards, and the Access Point/Phone Base station are only seperated by
10 feet =)

Less range, more expensive.
