The Scout and Hub uses a protocol called HPNA which does not conflict with a regular telephone line, but does conflict with DSL.
The only thing you might have wrong in your post is that you will want to connect things in the following manner:
Hub Wall Port = line 2
Hub Phone port = line 1
Scout Wall Port = line 2
Scout Phone Port = phone or unused
Not unless you specifically configured it this way when you did the initial setup. I do think if you loose power or Ooma service your phone connected to the Scout will revert to your QWest on line 2. Not a bad thing. One thing to consider though, without Premier service there is little reason to plug a phone directly into the Scout since you are putting your Hub's Phone port on line 1 throughout the house. You could just plug your phone directly into Line 1. Of course, then you'd loose the fail over to line 2 if Ooma service goes down.colorkid wrote:1. I hope and assume that my regular landline 2 will not ring the phone connected to the scout in this configuration, right?
I've never understood how 911 services work if you haven't integrated a landline. Someone else will have to answer that. Sorry.colorkid wrote:2. Will I have access to the landline 2 911 service from all of the OOMA phones connected to line 1 jacks in the house, as well as the phone connected to the scout? Can't wait to get this working. The OOMA sound quality is actually better than may current Qwest landline.
I noticed the same thing about Ooma sounding better than QWest. I have some theories, but that doesn't matter. One note on sound quality, some of us have noted a staticy/scratchy sound when using a phone connected to the Scout. It isn't bad and most people might not even notice it. My wife doesn't. I have but it is intermittent. According to Ooma tech support the only thing they can conclude is it's some sort of interference.
Let me know if something I've said doesn't make any sense. I understand this so clearly now that I sometimes don't express important details to new users.
Welcome to Ooma!
Sometimes there is something else going on in the home that makes it not so simple. Such as satellite TV systems that call home, alarm systems, or line 2 isn't connected throughout the home.
I'm so glad it worked so easily and the first time. I haven't had that sort of luck helping someone out in a long time.
