I have been using ooma for about 3 weeks....not making many calls, and only receiving a few test calls (since nobody has the new ooma number) however, there have been no entries in the call logs for either incoming or outgoing calls.....??? does something have to be enabled for call logs to work?

Do you have your landline integrated with ooma?
Have your test calls been local calls?

landline is still separate until porting is complete
I am using an ooma assigned phone number

yes, the test calls in to the ooma have been local, however I have made 4 or 5 long distance calls as well but nothing shows up in the logs

It should not affect your ability to get call logs, but we don't have any debug logs for your device (making it more difficult to determine the problem). Your router or firewall may be blocking syslog (port 514). Could you try opening that up?

Actually, the problem may be more fundamental than that. It doesn't look like your ooma box picked up a DNS server. Do you have it setup for static IP addressing? Can you describe your setup a little more?

I have verizon fios going to their router using coaxial cable
from the router I have a switch to which 4 desktop pcs and a wireless access point are connected.

Everything works well with the router DHCP pool of 192.168.1 to available for my devices.

All the computers use DHCP for their addresses, the access point and network printer use static IP addresses assigned by me.

When I first got ooma I tried to connect as follows
FIOS --> Router-->OOMA -->Switch but got only red lights

Then tried FIOS --> Router-->Switch-->OOMA (defaults)still got red lights

Then connected OOMA directly to laptop and entered ooma setup and changed default OOMA IP to static IP in my router's range

Current setup (WHICH WORKS PERFECTLY) is:
FIOS --> Router-->Switch-->OOMA (static IP in my router's DHCP pool)

Thanks !

Cool. Can you make sure you have configured a DNS server on your ooma Hub? That will make it easier to troubleshoot the problem.

Thanks for your quick response

What is the setting needed for DNS server?
Is this a setting from Verizon?

I am not at home right now
I will make any changes you suggest asap!

You should get your DNS server settings from Verizon. You should be able to find it either on your router or your computer. If not, you can use servers for
