OK computer guru's, I have Roadrunner with a cable modem that I hooked up to a MS wireless broadband networking router. From the router it is hard wired to the homes primary desktop computer. I then have a 2nd desktop that has a wireless earthnet (MS) type card installed and my laptop is connected to the wireless network by a MS Wireless USB Adapter. I can access the internet and E-mail from all computers, my problem comes to when i or others get online the wireless system interfers with the TV picture. It sends white lines across the full width of the screen. I tried a DA filter along with a line filter. No help. Then went and got a new filtered surge protector that filters both the cable and the electrical impulses but again no help. Whats next??????

not sure if this will help but a friend of mine has a wireless router and it works on 2.4 ghz, which is also what his cordless phone works on, thus giving him all kinds of problems until he went and got a 900 mhz phone, and it fixed everything, hope this will lead you in the right direction, goodluck

Probably you will have to switch hardware to go to a different frequency, thus if you are running 802.11b/g (2.4ghz) then you need to switch to 802.11g (5.8ghz) or vise versa. Linksys has some good products that are very affordable. I have seen 2.4ghz phones and wireless devices interfere with other devices in the home.
Every cordless phone I have had (many of them) has warnings about using the same AC outlet as other electronics and being in close proximity to them. They specify TV's and Computer's. Have you removed the router and wireless equipment to be sure it's the problem? If the problem is still present without the wireless in the loop call your cable company...

I have a 2.4ghz wireless router and several 2.4ghs cordless phones. No interference at all. My router is in my cellar on a circuit by itself. Did you try changing channels on the wireless connection? Most of the wireless interference that I've seen is between the wireless router and the 2.4ghz. wireless phones. Are you saying that you can do file transfers etc... between pcs with no interference but when you go through the router to the www you get interference? Try one wireless device at a time and see if you can narrow it down to one connection.Physically unplug the each wireless device.I have seen very few 2.4 ghz problems through many, many, many installations. You may just have a defective piece of equipment.Make sure that your pwer service ground is clean and tight, this can cause interference.

Found the problem, the amp booster that Roadrunner had installed had a bad wire and was unshielded. Removed it and hooked up the wireless again last night and wham, no TV interference. Mahalo for all the help from everyone here.
