Ooma not connecting - Attempting to Connect to the Ooma network in Dubai ( UAE )
Need help connecting, other Ooma users are connected but not sharing configurations settings. I tried to do a factory reset of the system but it did not work. There may be a firewall can someone please advise me how to work around the firewall?

Ooma Quote: Ooma is engineered for great voice quality but you will need a high-speed Internet connection equivalent to at least a typical DSL connection with 384 kbps upstream and downstream.

First run Speed Test and make sure that you have at least 384 kbps upload and download Internet speeds.

You can also go to and click on the Test Your Speed tab and run that test.

Next if you have enough Internet speed, you probably are using a DSL PPPoE Internet connection.
If so obtain the PPPoE name and address for entry into Ooma Setup and do the following procedure below.

Connect at least temporarily Modem-Ooma-Computer.
Temporarily connect a network cable from your Ooma device home port, to the wired LAN port of a computer. Temporarily turn off Wi-Fi in the computer, if turned on. Reboot the computer. Access your Ooma Setup pages by typing in your computer browser window. The Ooma Setup pages open. Click on Internet, following the words Connection type: click on the down arrow and select PPPoE. Below that fill in the Name and Password in PPPoE Options:
Click on the Update Device button below.
Remove power from the Modem, Ooma Telo, and Computer. Repower the Modem. When the Modem is done booting, repower the Ooma Telo. When the Ooma Telo is done booting, repower the Computer. If every thing works okay, if you have a router, connect it to the Home port of the Ooma Telo.

You mean you know of other Ooma users around you connected okay? Try signing up to the same Internet service provider or bring your Ooma to their home and try it.

"Other users" what are they doing to make Ooma work? Do they have different internet service provider? Do they do something to their internet modem or router? How do you know that theirs' work but yet they don't want to help you?

If I knew what Other Ooma users are doing then I wouldn't be posting and asking for help here...!! there is only one ISP in this area which is Etisalaat, it is illegal to use VOIP service and due to that no one shares the configuration or settings... I know in deed that theirs work because I have made a phone call from there place and the dial tone was Ooma's tone.
