Anyone know if this controller would interfere with 802.11g?

I'm not sure, but it's a possibility. My 2.4GHz phone interferes with 802.11g. That's the reason I haven't bought one of these controllers, yet. Too much running in that frequency range.

Tell me about it. I have poor/fair reception in my house because of the phones and the X10 stuff I have connected, so I'm not really taking full advantage of my wireless network. I don't think adding another wireless device would help! LOL :)

The only WiFi that does not operate on the 2.4Ghz freq. is 802.11a. which operates at 5.8Ghz. You should start seeing this available on more and more consumer devices in the future. (Many new laptops are already a/b/g compatible.) It operates in a regulated 5 Ghz range, where as the 2.4 Ghz is an unregulated freq. To answer your question, the best way to ensure that all of of your devices work together is to follow the following model. 802.11 operates on a band of 11 channels. Channel No. 1 - WiFi 2 - Unused 3 - Unused 4 - Unused 5 - Unused 6 - Unused 7 - Unused 8 - Unused 9 - Unused 10 - Unused 11 - x10 This will keep the two devices far away enough in the freq. rnage that they should not interfere allowing all the unused channel for your 2.4 ghz phone. Keep in mind that you may have to cycle through some phone channels until you find one that does not interfere. Usually one in the Ch. 6 range.
