installation Question

Post by SanMarzano » Thu Jun 18, 2009 6:55 pm

Si I installed OOMA after my router..

Modem--Linksys wrt54g---ooma

It work no problem with no port forwarding or QOS. I figured I would atleast need to enable portforwarding. Is that not the case anymore? Brinks also worked!

Glad to hear that your ooma is up and running. I'm sure there are those who might suggest some tweaks to your configuration based on their experience, but if it works well, great!

You don't need portforwarding for the same reasons you do not need to forward the high ports to your web browser to surf the Internet.

As for QoS settings. You might be able to get away without setting it up but if you start having troubles with drop outs or other voice issues while you are using the Internet you might want to consider enabling QoS.

That model linksys router works very well with ooma right out of the box!
