Laptop consistently dropping excellent signal from Linksys wireless-G router

I have a relatively new Dell Laptop and have recently set up a new wireless system in my house with a Linksys wireless-G  2.4GHz router.  I can access an excellent signal throughout the house but will drop the signal periodically for no apparent reason.

I also have new Uniden DCT648-3 2.4 GHz  phones and I am guessing the problem may be from interference from the phones. Is this true?  What are other possible causes? Is there anything I can do to deal with this problem without purchasing new equipment?

many thanks

Yup, you are right. 2 devices working at the same frequency 2.4Ghz will interfere with each other. Try to change the channel from 1 to 11. Or put the 2 devices away from each one.
