new installation question

Post by sfencl » Wed Aug 08, 2012 5:16 am

Sorry for long question.... I'm setting up a new Ooma telo in brothers house. He currently has internet and a landline phone service with a wireless router that plugs into any phone line. Today he is dropping the landline service but will continue his internet service. The disconnect for his landline takes place at the business site. My question is, when his landline is disconnected, can I plug his Ooma into the same phone jack that is feeding his wireless router with a duplex plug so all the phones work in the house?? Thanks for any help.

You don't want to connect Ooma's phone port to a walljack with phone line still connected to the phone company.
