Even though it's against my principles, and I really prefer to understand what the problem is and fix it, I'm just going to buy two more handsets for my cordless phone that's hooked to the hub and use the Scout for a paperweight.
It's a shame, and a waste of money, but my brain is already thanking me.
Just an idea for some of you pulling your hair out. I know that $40-100 is not insignificant to many people, especially today, but your sanity and your time may be worth the spend, unless you get your jollies playing around in the phone box! No judgment , I'm just sayin'!
Happy day, all!
I've learned a lot here... two months ago I didn't even know how to spell VOIP and now I are one.
make sure no dialtone on house wiring
run from ooma to scout continuous
ooma wall port to scout wall port
and you are good to go
you can check scout by placing it right next to the hub and plugging in wall port to wall port and a phone into the scout phone port
if it works there, then you have wiring issues
OP: Have your Wireless-phone and always remember, the Scout still stands ready to serve if ever needed (say the phone-extension breaks or loses power and won't charge up...or once you are off the old-fashioned copper DSL wiring, and onto a more powerful Internet connection such as Cable or Fiber... hint/hint).
ooma hardware: core (hub/scout) and Telo
