I recently purchased a new 2meter HT. Foiund that my Linksys wireless computer network router is radiating very strong harmonics between 144.00Mhz and 148.00Mhz. The affected area is more than 30FEET radius from the router so it's not a case of just moving one or the other. I have a call into Linksys. Any ideas, other than shutting the system down while I'm using the radio ? I've tried changing firmware, modes, and channels in the router - no help.

Sure sorry to hear it.  I have the same system at work and at home, and neither causes any interference with my HF or VHF gear, including a pair of 2mtr HTs.

Wonder if you just got a bad one?

I have an old BEFW11S4. The radiation is from the ethernet cables, on HF, mostly around 7 Mc, and ferrite beads on the ethernet cables helped. Don't have any problems at VHF.

Some ethernet chipsets are REALLY bad. I have an Intel CA810 mobo with a builtin Intel chipset and I can pick it up a block away. Since it only radiates when an ethernet link is established, I use a PCI ethernet card instead.

"BEFW11S4." I think that's the one I finally got rid of, because it squealed like a stuck pig on multiple frequencies. Neither the FCC nor Linksys really cares, although Linksys will repair/replace it if it is still under warranty.
