Phone and route setup

Post by Willy15 » Sat Mar 09, 2013 5:15 pm

My OOMA phone is working fine and my internet works fine - separately. If I receive a phone call, the internet stops and all I get is the hour glass until I hang up. Does the phone take full control of the router ports and this is normal?
Setup is Comcast cable modem (DOCSIS 3.0) to a Cisco/Linksys EA6500 router to OOMA. Phone quality is great and internet is fast.
I tried normal setup cable-ooma-router, but the internet connection was limited to 100mb not the 1000mb that the computer/router/cable was capable of.
There was a mention of turning off QOS on the OOMA, but that did not help.
Any ideas that would let them work together?

Thank you for the help.
I've gone through the routine several times before with no results.
BUT after doing a power cycle for the seventh time, it started working.!!!!!!!
BTW I have comcast modem to cisco router to ooma. I thought putting the ooma behind the router was a safe thing to do.
I always waited at least two minutes between tests.. Power off for two minutes then back on for two minutes before trying any tests. I guess it needed the seven kicks before it understood. Thank you again.
