    :No, it probably has more to do with the fact that they both operate in the
    :unlicensed but regulated 2.4Ghz band.
    	That's not incompatible w/ my earlier long as two frequencies
    aren't relatively prime, they can cause harmonic interfearence w/ each
    other. There are many frequency pairs in the 2.4 Ghz range that meet this
    	FCC Regulation has nothing to do w/ the laws of physics. The fact that two
    devices operate in an unregulated range do not cause them to interfere with
    each other. I doubt the underlying electronics of the device are even aware
    of FCC regulation.
    :I strongly disagree with your methodologies. Please explain?
    	I wasn't proposing a methodolgy, just one possible explanation of the cause
    of an event. Possible -- I'm not an RF expert by far.

    You _may_ get some relief by manipulating the channel on the access point or
    on the telephone handset.
