Hello. The ooma telo has a home network port, and anyone that has access to the ooma can connect their computer straight into that port, and no one will know the difference. Is there anyway to block access to the home network? (For example to disable the dhcp server, or remove the physical hub)

Configure the DHCP table inside of the Telo so that the rightmost octet for the start and end IP address is 255.
The Telo allows it and it is an invalid IP address. Anything connected to the Home port will not be assigned an IP address.

Once you do this a factory reset of the Telo is needed to return the Home port to operation.
I know their are other ways around the reset but if they are published the trick becomes less useful.
Please do not respond in this thread with the ways around the reset.
