Is Ooma Hub's firewall as good as the ones that come in your typical consumer routers from Netgear, D-Link, Linksys, etc.?

I'm wondering if it's safe to connect a gigabit switch to the Ooma Hub and allow the Hub to be the router/firewall for a group of computers.

I've never ever heard of an Ooma Hub or Ooma Telo ever being hacked. Many people do just what you are thinking of doing, connecting a switch to the Ooma device's Home port.

I don't recall seeing an SPI checkbox in the firmware, but if you verify it with SheildsUP!, it passes.

It fails ShieldsUP! because of ping reply. I assume this is Ooma's way of checking if it can reach your device?
