Some Questions About Wireless Routers

I want to setup a home network.

I am thinking of getting a Linksys Wireless Router, however, I have heard that a lot of connections such as on bit torrent or other P2P programs eventually kill the router.

Second, I read that an incoming call on a 2.4 Ghz phone interferes with the router since that is the same frequency as 802.11b.  Do these claims hold true for all routers?

Hi abstractionz,

>>I have heard that a lot of connections such as on bit torrent or other P2P programs eventually kill the router.
May I ask where you heard about that? A router is made for multiple connections to the internet... it'll feel fairly happy with this.

>>I read that an incoming call on a 2.4 Ghz phone interferes with the router since that is the same frequency as 802.11b.  Do these claims hold true for all routers?
Some may slow down the connection a bit, but don't expect mayor problems from this. The protocol is pretty fail proof and it should just keep working.

Greetings,

LucF

and it's mentioned in the 1st customer review.

abstractionz,
That first customer also said "check dslreports or sveasoft forums for more info..."
So I did, and also Linksys pages... the lastest firmware will prevent the lockup, it's in no-way close to "kill the router"
