In one reply above, there are two sentences where I could use some help. "To distribute dialtone to your bedroom 1 and any other phone jacks in the house, you must combine the signal from the WALL and PHONE ports. I believe a splitter came with your ooma core package". I don't believe that I had a splitter. What does the splitter look like and what do you split with it?
thanks,
Here is what the ooma splitter looks like:

The splitter is actually combining the signals from the WALL and PHONE ports on your hub so you can use your home wiring for either direct connection of a telephone or cordless base - or connection of a scout. ooma usually packaged one in the plastic bag of cables. If you can't find one from your ooma, you can get one at a dollar store or Home Depot/Lowes. It may be with our without the cord. Some plug directly into the jack like the one below:

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.

Great, understood.
By the way, there was no splitter in the box.
Thanks for the prompt reply.
