i have a d-link dir-825.
its prority settings is 1 thur 8.
how does that translate to your setting of 50?


On the 655, priorities run 0-255. By default, all connections are made at priority 128. Lower numbers have higher priority. Hence, the 50 he assigned is pretty high priority. You wouldn't want to set anything too high since then it is completely starving other connections (i.e. not a good idea to set it to 0) but otherwise, the exact numbers such as the 50 he chose aren't all that important. He would have gotten similar results with say 40 or 60. He's really just saying "much higher than default priority".

So, in your case, assuming 1 is high priority and 8 is low, and assuming default is 4 (not sure if these are how your priorities run in the 825, you should check if not sure), his 50 is probably equivalent to your 2. You don't want to set a 1 but you want something higher priority than the 4.

Thanks so much for these very succinct instructions! They worked like a charm for me.

I did notice a couple of corrections that should be made:
Step 1, #3: Clarify that you ensure 'Enabled' is checked in the "Add DHCP Reservation" section.
Step 5, add after #1: Go to the "Setup" tab and choose "Network Settings"
QOS, #6: Correct "enter the IP address reserved and assigned to the router" to "enter the IP address reserved and assigned to the Ooma"

You should still be able to access the Ooma device setup page by plugging your laptop directly (hard wire) into the Home port on the Ooma and opening your browser to or (You will have to use ipconfig to release and renew your IP assignment if you were previously connected to the network.) This should allow you to see the Ooma settings so you can troubleshoot your setup. If you have followed the instructions provided by indie_dev, you should also be able to access your Ooma setup from a PC on your network using the static IP address you assigned to it.

This is a great guide and I followed it to the letter. Anxiously am awaiting number porting. I have a few lingering issues that I hope can be cured and because this is a specific setup I'm not sure what forum info would apply to my questions. I have a Comcast broadband service that gives me @40Mbps down and @3Mbps up.


1. When I have a pc connected using a VPN connection, my Jitter jumps to @11ms

2. After initial setup using this guide, my download speed would not pass test so I added my Telos to the DIR-655 DMZ. This seemed to help.

3. Cannot call into my work VM. Seems to be a DTMF issue.

4. My QOS is out of limit (stats below).

Can anyone offer some tips to any of these? Thanks in advance.

Is there some security imporovement?

My modem, router, and three computers support gigabit speeds. (Yes I know the speed over the cable is only 20 mbits per second, that's not the point). Ooma does not, it's max is 100 mbits per second. Transfers between computers using gigabit speeds are 10 times faster. Ooma is also a simplistic router with many missing features. For example you can't configure it to not respond to incoming ping requests. That is a security problem since it makes you visible to anyone looking for a target to attack.
