I recently installed the Ooma Telo 100-0201-300R refurbished. I hooked up between my Alcatel Speed Touch Home modem and Netgear N300 wireless router WNR 2000 v3 using AT&T DSL.
As I was connecting through the phone the reception was breaking up, (some words were mising) it wasn't working to good.
The worse part was the internet connection kept dropping when me and my wife were surfing the internet.
I did the speed test that was linked from this forum and received all good marks.
I tried doing a search but found nothing.
Thanks in Advanced,
To recap, you had: modem -->telo -->router
You should change it to: -->modem -->router -->Telo
Nothing should be plugged into your Telo's Home Network jack in the rear of the Telo.
This configuration works better for many than the suggested setup in the Ooma manual.

If you don't mind I have another question; the telephone module on the wall has two ports, one is for phone
, the other DSL. When I hook up the phone to the Telo I hear that certain chime, then dial tone, all good. I go into the other room where the other cordless phone resides and I get the same chime and dial tone, all good. My bedroom phone is plugged in a single module phone jack and I get the regular dial tone.
I have a spiltter outside in the phone junction box.
Am I good to go for a ported phone number? I want to transfer my home phone number to the Telo and not have any problems. To me it seems like I do have a seperate DSL from Voice.
What are your thoughts.
Still good on the internet connection!!
You can find them at Radio Shack, Walmart etc. etc. OR, you might have one tucked away from the original install.
That link you gave me was very informative.
If I wanted to rewire from outside box to module next to Telo, what is the best wire to get, and will it work better then the wire that is in my home now? The home is 21 years old with what looks like regular phone wire.
