And in my case, that is EXACTLY what happened. I had 2.4 GHz house

when I realized what was happening. I replaced the phones at ridiculous
cost on the 5.4 GHz band and the problems vanished over night.

the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there.
The only difference is that there is no cat." - Einstein
