Indeed when I try to ping that address, it times out. So I called Qwest, I got a customer service tech in the Philippines who is not on the Qwest network, and she couldn't ping that address either. I have a friend who gets a timeout also, he is on Comcast.
Can any of you ping that Ooma server and get a response? Would like to know what other ISP networks produce when one pings 126.96.36.199
Maybe this is a fools errand and that is not a pingable IP?
Have you connected to the setup page for your Telo?
You can connect to the Ooma setup page by opening your web browser to http://setup.ooma.com. Note that this page can only be accessed from a computer connected directly to the HOME NETWORK port of the Telo (HOME port on Ooma Hub).
If you're still unable to access the setup page from a computer connected directly to the correct port, you may need to configure your computer to get an IP address dynamically and not use a static IP address. You also may need to reboot your computer.
FOLLOWUP EDIT: I doubt that IP address is in any way relevant. A reverse DNS lookup on it returns "AC8FA80C.ipt.aol.com" ... meaning it's not an ooma server that lives there. Looks more like an ISP's DHCP node to me.

I'm going to go down to bestbuy and get a dumb DSL modem, with no router and try the "other" configuration (DSL Line > Modem >Telo >Router).
I'm pretty confident that I have the telo in the router DMZ, but for some reason the Ooma server can't get back to the Telo. I'm getting desperate now.

tracert also shows a firewall at AOL:
There appears to be a firewall at (hop 11 - unknown) that blocks ICMP (ping) packets.
There appears to be a firewall at (hop 11 - unknown) that blocks unwanted UDP packets.
There appears to be a firewall at 220.127.116.11 that blocks unwanted TCP packets.
Just seems strange that ooma would be using a server from AOL??

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
