Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

This is not strictly related to Linux, but it shuts down mu Linux connections when it happens.
It's basically this: I use a Belkin wired/wireless ADSL router. The main desktop is wired ehternet and the laptop connects wirelessly. The router ADSL connect to a filtered phone socket about six feet away. The home phone is a cordless phone (not sure of the mHZ, but it is a fairly new one.) Whenever this phone rings and is in use, the router's ADSL modem shuts down and I lose my broadband connection. When the phone is hung up, I cannot regain a connection until the router is rebooted (by unplugging and replugging the power since I cannot even connect to the router's software until I do this.) After a hard reboot, the connection is restored.
I have a filter on the phone connection (separate connection upstairs) which makes no difference. I have read of similar problems, but nothing quite like this. I was under the impression that cordless phone operated on a completely different band than wireless routers, which operate on the 2.4gHZ band. I also have a transmitter downstair which send the TV signal upstairs which also knocks out the connection, however, this little device operates on the same band (2.4GHZ) so I can understand this one.
Anyone have any ideas on how to configure this setup to stop this annoying problem?
I googled for an hour and could not find any information on the band of this phone. It is a Panasonic Kx-TC725E, and while I found similar model numbers (I am sure this one is no longer made) none of the specs information showed any information about the broadcast band. For that matter, no phone I found specs for indicated what band it uses. Seemed strange as I would have figured this would have been useful information for most owners.
At any rate, I sure you are correct. Unless I get a new phone, I guess I will have to put up with this one.
