I am using a Speed Stream Router---Set Up is DSL to Speed Stream to Ooma. I did try turning off the firewall, no luck, still blinking. Can I restart by unplugging everything??
Thanks for any assistance.
However, finally I was referred to a technician named Richard. The problem was finally diagnosed as “faulty equipment”. A replacement was here in just a few days. I plugged everything in and it worked right out of the box.
I used the simplest set up.
>DSL phone company gateway>> Ethernet cable to Ooma Ethernet Plug
>>Home Network Plug on Ooma with Ethernet cable to my computer
>>Phone Plug on Ooma to my land telephone with Phone cable
My DSL phone company gateway has several connections available so my wireless network is simply plugged into another Ethernet Plug. Everything appears to be working. I have made and received calls so everything from here should be easy…I hope.
Thank you Richard. You made my day.
