Currently I have a Netgear wireless router. It works ok but at times when I am on my laptop and I go to a content heavy site, it sometimes drops the signal I have to manually unplug my router for it to reset.

And now I have recently hooked up a wireless 2.4ghz phone and my wireless internet is always dropping its signal. (I read that the phone is the cause)

Is there a wireless router that does not drop signals and can work with wireless phones? Any recommendations?

I'm not sure about needing a new router. But see if your model supports DD-WRT.
