I do not have Ooma in the Router's DMZ and it has been working fine for a few weeks now. Should I configure the router to have Ooma in the DMZ (I now feel I might be missing something if I don't have it in the DMZ)?
If it ain't broke don't fix it
In the alternate configuration, with Ooma before the router (cable modem->ooma->router), there is good reason to have Ooma's DMZ open to the router. It saves you from having to open two separate firewalls every time you need an opening. Are you sure the other posts weren't talking about this?
Anyway, generally DMZs are not a good option in the first place. You only set them up when it's necessary or solves a problem. In your case, there is little to no benefit and your Ooma is more secure without the DMZ. I can see no real purpose to doing this. Unless you have some specific problems, I wouldn't touch it.
