I ran through the procedure below and I got it connected.
Then it was lit up red the next day.
And now I have tried the same stuff below repeatedly and I get nothing.
(I tried with Comodo firewall off too - though it was working with it on.)
Here is what I did exactly:
Disconnected OOMA from my network
Powered off (unplugged) the ooma and waited 30 seconds
Held down the blue tab and power on the ooma *and*
(NOTE: My tab is Clear but I it's the only tab to hold down.)
while still continuing to hold down the tab
waited for all lights to stop blinking then released the tab.
(NOTE: I waited too long and they started to cycle through again so I unplugged when they got to the place in the cycle where they were all off.) (COULD SOMEONE MENTION HOW LONG THE CYCLE TAKES SO I CAN KNOW THE DIFF BETWEEN A PAUSE IN THE LIGHT CYCLE AND THE END )
Powered Ooma back off and plugged cat5 - modem port to router
with Ooma off I powered off all my other devices wated 30 sec
and powered them back on at 30 sec intervals in this order;
Thinking maybe I'd better return this and stick with Viatalk?
Did I mess anything up?
Is the continued presence of the Viatalk modem an issue?
Any other ideas?
