I'm setting up my home office, having just left a long-term contract for which I worked onsite.

I'm curious how you handle your telephone requirements. Here is my dream setup:

---Phone would have Caller ID
---Console (you know, the big part that sits on the desk) would have buttons for preset #s (I prefer physical buttons to a tiny backlit screen I'd have to scroll through)
---Wireless headset I could wear around the house (with another wireless piece I could dial from, also anywhere around the house; and this piece would also have Caller ID)
---No interference with my Linksys wireless router

I don't have a mobile, nor do I want one. So, this would all be coming through my home landline.

How do you manage your phone setup? Of all the things I'm looking for, a wireless headset that doesn't interfere with the Linksys is my biggest Need to Have. (If you use Vonage, Skype, or any similar service, does it work on conference calls? A friend of mine finally gave up using Vonage on our conference calls, because he was always a beat behind everyone and caused a great deal of confusion by interrupting people unintentionally. The time lag, small as it was, was a killer.)

Thanks for any and all suggestions.
