I just set up ooma tonight. Registered the hub before connecting the system. Cable internet. I have a Motorola surfboard modem, then I connected the ooma hub via the modem slot and the hub to the Linksys wrt54gx-v2 via the home slot. I have two solid green lights on the home and modem slots on the hub. I have a blue light on the hub. I can make and receive calls. But I can no longer access the internet. The internet works if I hook a laptop directly to the hub via the home slot.

Also the wireless router is networking. I just can't get access to the internet.

I am a novice network troubleshooter.

Any suggestions to get the internet back up and working?

The internet works fine when I disconnect the ooma hub and hook the modem directly to the router.

Thanks In Advance

Do you have cable? Did you power cycle the cable modem? That is always required when you change what is connected to the cable modem.

I'm an experienced user, and I had the same issue this morning, after quite a while of good ooma blue-lightedness.

My ooma showed red (top four red lights) this morning after working fine last night. No internet from inside (I was modem-ooma-router), and the advanced page showed my Ooma's modem-side IP address was and that my internet connection was down. After rewiring to modem-router-ooma internet came right up and I'm blue again.

I suspect the ooma isn't properly renewing its DHCP lease from my upstream provider, but I could be wrong. I'll play with it tonight after work.

I figured it out. At some point, I think to fix a balky Xbox-360 networking issue, I had gone to Static IP's on the router. I went back to Automatic config-DHCP and that solved the problem. The Xbox-360 had long been hard wired to the router so the Static IP's were no longer necessary.
