has anyone tried this magic jack...greatest thing since sliced bread if you have an internet connection, but what if your internet connection is a wireless connection.

when you are browsing or doing email and the wireless connection switches over to a new network sometimes rather seemlessly and you are thinking 'hey didnt i start out on network x? how'd it go to network z?' well when you are using an internet phone it cuts the call. period, zapp, call them back later. well i found a solution that seems to be working, use a router. even if the connection that the router is attached to changes, your connection is going thru the router and it seems to keep the connection of the magic jack longer than it takes to be realized that the connection stoped. the only thing is you will notice your 911 address will disappear but the person you are talking to will still be there for at least a min, enough time to say 'let me call you right back.' anyone else have issues with wireless and a network phone?

That does sound interesting, but wouldn't another solution be to disable the roaming function of the wireless device?

network adapter...no roaming function to diable. but the problem has been resolved we now have a router in the basement that overrdes the rest of the networks that show up and me and the kids now connect to that. seems the cable company finally got what they want and got us to sign up for their service. when the phone lines went digital thats when the problem showed up as analog dialup doent work on a digital line. but i am happy...it turns out to be much less than i thought and its a dedicated connection.
