Quote possibly, but it all depends on the distance between the devices, and
the channel selected on the WLAN cards.

I have had interference from my Panasonic 2.4GHz phone on my WLAN cards when
they were set to channel 5, but moving them to channel 13 solved the problem
(my wife was on the phone for over 2 hours so I had PLENTY of time to
experiment :-).  The WLAN card was in a direct line between the phone
handset and phone base station (I just suddenly got really poor performance
from the WLAN card (DLink 650) and total dropouts depending on where I moved
the laptop - took a little while to click :-).
