Followed directions as described in start-up guide and I'm stuck with solid red 1/2 buttons and solid red play/forward buttons. I've double checked the connections, rebooted the system, etc. I have Internet access. Nothing gets me past this step.

The equipment I'm dealing with is a Comcast cable modem and a Netgear wireless router.

Any suggestions?

You need to tell us how you hooked it up. If the ooma hub is connected to the cable modem, it is required that you power cycle the cable modem.

Not sure what you mean by power cycle, but it goes modem, ooma, Netgear router.

When I activated my hub, I indicated that I wanted to keep my existing phone number, which I am now told was not the right thing to do, that cable telephone subscribers need to first establish a temporary number and then port their number later.

Power cycle means turn the cable modem off, wait 15 seconds, then turn the cable modem back on.

I am having the same problem. I was able to get the > and >>| lights to turn off by plugging a phone cord from a phone jack to the wall port.
However, I still have the red 1 and 2 buttons. The ooma tab is also flashing red. When I run I get the following information:

Your ooma Network is Registering, please wait...

Internet: Connected
Ooma Core: Registering, please wait...

Phone Line: Connected

Ooma Services

Phone Setup: We are waiting for your phone line to be configured for the ooma network
Second Line: Enabled

Voice Mail: Enabled

I have made sure that all of the necessary ports are open in the firewall.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

John S.

jsuchman, sounds as though it is trying to connect to ooma. Try putting the ooma hub after the modem like this:


Did you activate it online?

Yes, I activated the hub first, just like the manual states.

My configuration is just as you suggested.

With ooma connected as you do, can you get on the internet with a pc?
Have you reset (power cycled) each piece of equipment?
Modem first, wait for it to connect, ooma, router.

Also, you may try connecting ooma to the router like a pc and see if that makes a difference.
