2.4 ghz Wireless

By pteipe ·
I'm looking at a Panasonic Gigarange extreme phone that uses a 2.4 GHz Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) frequecy range. Wouldn't this interfere with most LAN wireless access points? I was just looking at both Netgear and D-Link WAP's, and they use the same frequency range and DSSS technology.

2.4 ghz Wireless

The answer is both yes and no. The potential exists for interference, but in reality you probably won't see any. The key is to make sure that your phone is at least two meters away from the wireless Access points. Usually not a problem since theyare generally mounted on a wall while the phone sits on a desk. This is the range within which you will have the greatest likelihood of interference. 2.4 GHz is part of the ISM band. There are literally 1000's of devices operating in these bands, but seldom does destructive interference occur. That is the reason they are using DSSS technology. The signal is split, or spread, up in such a way as to appear as background noise to other devices. As a result most devices simply ignore signals generated by other non-similar devices, i.e. phones vs. 802.11b hubs.
