Re: Uverse remote tvs frezze up when Ooma connected to Gateway

To be more accurate... there are 3 RJ11 ports on the back of the UVerse RG. One with a green square around it for the digital signal from AT&T unless you're using a coax connection from the remote office or switch in which case nothing will be plugged in here. There are 2 other ports labeled Line 1/2 and Line 2 (at least on my RG). These other two ports push an analog phone dial tone and that's it. This is where I have my Ooma connected. Forgive me for not being specific but I was using the universal "phone" port to mean "where you plug your phone in".Leeway wrote:I have U-Verse.

I do NOT use the U-verse phone connection in any way. Everything I have is plugged directly into either the RG or my Netgear switch.
The phone port on the back of the RG is strictly for U-Talk and nothing to do with other phone systems.
I don't have a telephone attached to the hub at all. My hub is connected to the wall jack and all of my wall jacks are active. I have a cordless base in the family room and cordless handsets elsewhere.
