I have both DSL and Cable. When I run ooma on Cable the bandwidth drops from 12mbps to 1mbps, but when I run ooma on DSL the bandwidth only drops from 3mbps to 2mbps. Does anyone have an explanation for this? The cable speed drop is very unusual providing that ooma only consumes .5mb.
I am completely puzzled. . .
Thank you in advance
Hi Atici, this is the setup I have:atici wrote:Try running the ooma behind the router. Then there will be no drops in either case.
For DSL: Phone Line -> Ooma Hub -> Router/Modem -> PC
For Cable: Cable Line -> Modem -> Ooma Hub -> Router -> PC
modem/router --> ooma and pc's
modem--> router--> ooma and pc's
This setup should work best for you.
Your initial dsl map didn't look right with ooma in front of the modem.
Make sure you power cycle modem/router and ooma after connecting.
Thank you everyone for your response.atici wrote:Yes, I was recommending what WayneDsr said. Also put ooma on a reserved ip address with DMZ (demilitarized zone) on your router configuration.
I got the cable to replace the DSL, so I would not be using both as a permanent solution. It’s just that I still have two days before DSL cancelation goes in effect.
I will try power cycling it first thing when I get home.
Atici, can you please point me to some documentation on how to put ooma on the reserved ip . . . I know very little about all that stuff.
