I hooked up my new Telo today and it seems to be working great. Unfortunately my internet access no longer does. I am running Windows 7 Home; Belkin +N Wireless Router; Comcast cable internet access.

When I have the Telo hooked up: Modem to Wireless Router to Telo to computer; Telo works, wireless internet access works; wired computer internet access behind Telo doesn't work.

When I have the Telo hooked up: Modem to Telo to Wireless Router to computer - Telo works; no internet on either wired computer or wireless access. Router lights show like it is connected to the internet, but nothing works.

I have rebooted and reset all the components.

Anyone have any suggestions?

What IP address range does your router use?
It can't be the same as the range the Ooma box uses.

removed the wireless router and Telo, so it was just my desktop and modem. Internet worked again after windows fixed an IP issue. Installed the Telo between the modem and desktop. Telo worked, desktop internet didn't. Took the Telo out, reconnected Modem, wireless router, desktop and both wireless and wired internet work fine... I am able to access the Ooma Telo Setup Page via from the desktop. Tried selecting the built in MAC port w/o success.

Something to try:

1. With Ooma Telo behind (LAN side of) router,temporarily access your Ooma Telo “home port” by plugging in a patch (network) cable from the Ooma Telo home port to a computer’s network card port. Sometimes you have to restart your computer after installing the patch cable, so that a proper connection occurs.
2. Type in you browser address window and hit enter. The “Ooma Setup” window opens.
3. In the left hand Navigation window, select “Network”.
4. Under “Network Settings” go to network connection: select the down arrow with your mouse and select “Automatic” (if not already configured to Automatic).
5. Enter the following:
a. Under “Modem Port MAC Address”, select "Use Built in":
b. Select the Update button.
6. Do a “cold boot” of the router.
7. After the router cold boot, do a “cold boot” of the Ooma Telo.
8. Than restart your Laptop.

If your Laptop still can't see the Internet, try the following:
Ping your router's LAN IP address with your Laptop still connected to the Ooma Telo's "Home" Port.
1. On your Laptop go to "Start", Than "Run", Open "Run" window, than type "cmd" and enter. The cmd window will open.
Ping: your router's LAN IP address, will look like: ping ,and enter (must get actual router LAN IP number from your router).
If you can successfully ping your router's LAN IP address, but you still can't access the Internet, than something in your router is probably blocking. If you can't successfully ping your router's LAN address, than you Ooma Telo is probably defective.

Try it and good luck.

PS: there is one more thing to try, that I can post later, if you still can't access the Internet.
