I've got a wireless bluetooth Logitech MS Keyboard and Mouse. I've seen no degradation at all? I initially had a wire mouse and keyboard, and if there is/was any degradation, it wasn't apparent to me.

Depending on the frequency of your router though, wireless phones can cause problems. Most routers are 2.4GHZ and older phones are this same frequency. Newer routers now run dual band, 2.4GHZ and 5.0GHZ, and newer phones run at 6.0 which minimizes the problems.
