Hey fellas. I need to split my ethernet signal out of the ooma. I need to route the signal into a linksys befsr41....then the signal outputs need to go to a linksys wrt54g wirless router and a netgear wireless router. Is this doable ? For obvious reasons, I should not put the wired router in front of the ooma right? Just for clarification, I have this working perfectly so far: cable modem, ethernet cable goes out to ooma, phone line connects to home, and ethernet port comes out to a single wrt54g wireless router. This router happens to be 80 feet away and the cable is run through walls. Thanks in advance everyone.

You can put the Ooma behind the wired router (and if necessary, hang the wireless router also off the wired router - in parallel to the Ooma).

Just curious - why do you need to go out to two wireless routers? You can't really "split" an ethernet connection. You can't run two devices off of one port. You can split wires on a cable, but that isn't what it sounds like what you are talking about.

Do your wirless routers have hardwire connections? You could essentially connect one wireless router into antothe.
