Do you mean connect the Ooma by wire to the router? That won't work for me. I must have the Ooma in the room with my base phone device which is a different room from where the router and printer/FAX machine. That's the reason I purchased Ooma with Telo.
What is the purpose of *99?
Here's an extract from an OOMA document which lists out the star codes they support:
" ..... Your Ooma device supports standard star codes that you may have used in the past. We’ve also introduced a few new codes for Ooma-specific functions. See the chart below for a list of star codes that Ooma supports:
