Any experts who can think of how I might want to configure the Verizon/Westell modem will be profusely thanked.

Note that the Netgear box supports two WANs - one is TW cable, the other is Verizon DSL. My initial observation was, when ooma was connected to a LAN port and both WANs were enabled, I could hear the caller but not vice versa. Above, a lot of suggestions focused on the non-preferred cofiguration downstream of an intelligent network device, thus the direct-to-Verizon experiment.
There's a clue in the observation that direct-to-Verizon got me a red light, but when the Netgear box was allowed to use both WANs the system worked except for outgoing conversation, but I can't put a finger on it.
The system works perfectly if I tell Netgear to not use the Verizon WAN. There are no unusual rules in place in the Netgear box, so it should be applying its normal rules identically to both WANs.
