installation of telos

Post by mlmaher » Mon Oct 19, 2009 4:51 am

Can the Telo be installed on a hub after the router? I can do that with my vonage box.It doesn't seem to work with Telo. Just to be clear I only have a network cable running to the internet connection and a phone connected to the Telo. Will this setup work? Thanks

It can be done but you have to change the IP addresses that the DHCP server in the Telo issues. Change all instances of 35 to 36.
It's better if the hub and the Telo are each plugged into the router. If there aren't enough ports available on the router, inexpensive switches are available to expand the number of ports on your router.

By hub, do you mean an older ooma hub?

A Telo can plug into your network the same way a pc can. The Telo is a router in itself and you can plug pc's into it via the HOME/NETWORK port.

If you connect just a modem, the Telo should connected fine. Connect any pc's to the HOME/NETWORK port of the Telo using the hub.
So it would look like this:
modem-->Telo-->hub (or pc)
modem-->router-->Telo (if you are using a router)

When adding or changing your network setup make sure to power cycle everything to refresh the changes.

Tell us more about your setup and what the Telo is doing/notdoing.
