That, or the laptop is not configured to acquire an IP through DHCP -- which is my guess.thunderbird wrote:khoelting:
If you included the http:// when you typed http://172.27.35.1 into your browser's window, and had the firewall/virus software turned off while trying and was using firefox or Internet explorer, it wasn't you, it's the Ooma unit itself.
There is that one last possibility that your computer's wired LAN connection isn't configured correctly.
Check by right clicking on your My Network Places icon and left click on properties, right click on Local Area Connection in the window that opens and left click on properties.
In the window that opens scroll down to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and highlight the words. Don't uncheck the box in front of Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). With your mouse go down and select Properties. Make sure the "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" buttons are selected. Click OK, than Ok again for the next window. Restart your computer and type http://172.27.35.1 in your computer's browser’s window. The Ooma Setup window will open.?
If by now you have called Ooma Customer Support, and they are going to send you a replacement Ooma device under warranty, that's okay because you still have the problem of your old Ooma device restarting by itself to deal with. A replacement Ooma device will fix that problem.
Another route to change TCP/IP settings Window 7 for Microsoft http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/wind ... P-settingskhoelting wrote:Thanks to you all SO much for the help. I think you're right about the settings being wrong on my laptop. This is going to sound stupid, but I have windows 7 on it and I couldn't find the tcp/ip thing you mentioned. Anyway, I found another thread about a different way to set up the ooma. I now have my set up this way: modem > router > ooma, with ooma using the router as my wired pcs. I then went into the router's qos setting and using the ooma's mac address, set it to the highest priority. i restarted everything and it all seems to be working. Do you think this setup is ok? If I still get the power off thing going on, I will have to call customer service, although I don't really don't want to do that. I've only had the ooma unit for a couple of weeks, so I am early into the warranty period. Thanks again for the help!
TCP/IP defines the language that your computer uses to communicate with other computers. We recommend using automated Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to automatically assign Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to the computers on your network, if your network supports it. If you use DHCP, then you don't have to change your settings if you move your computer to another location, and DHCP doesn't require you to manually configure settings such as Domain Name System (DNS) and Windows Internet Name Service (WINS).

Watch for the Ooma self restart problem. If it does it even once more, get it and/or the power adapter replaced.
