I didn't know if using a cell phone or wireless land-line phone could effect
wireless. Or is the newer version set to a higher frequency now?

Cell phones aren't in the 802.11g frequency band (2.4GHz,) but a lot of
other stuff is. From a technical perspective, that band is called the
Industrial, Science and Medical band (ISM) and those users get first
dibs. Unlicensed transmitters like 802.11g have to accept interference
from licensed IBM transmitters, and further, must not interfere with
licensed ISM users.

All that means that you can, in fact have a poor WiFi experience
depending on who your neighbours are. And your neighbours might be your
own cordless phone or baby monitor. A poor experience usually results
in many packet retries, which does slow throughput down.

If I were doing what you are doing, I'd drill a hole and run fiber.
You'd also need a pair of media converters, but you won't be wondering
about your throughput when the phone rings.
