Wireless internet doesn't work when cordless phone in use

Lately I've been losing wireless network access when the cordless
phone is in use elsewhere in the house.

My PC is connected to a 5GHZ wireless Pace/U-Verse home Gateway VIA
Netgear dual band USB adapter.  The cordless phone base station is
5.8GHZ sitting right next to the wireless gateway, and is VOIP
connected to the gateway.  Another PC is using the same model of
Netgear adapter 10 feet away from the gateway (also on 5ghz) and it
has no trouble accessing the internet at that same time the cordless
is in use.

I haven't tried switching over to the 2.4GHZ radio on the PC during
the outages (didn't think of it until now), but I know my Android
phones have working 2.4GHZ wireless during the lone PC outage.

This just started happening out of the blue after 6 months of the same
setup.  Is there an easy explanation for this?

    Nope. I have the same problem. I've changed filters, router,
modem etc and come to the conclusion it's something on the telco's
side. I have to reboot the modem every time it happens.
