I have an Ooma Hub/Scout and use the instant 2nd line feature quite a bit. I changed my setup to distribute the Ooma dialtone to all phone jacks in my house and now the instant 2nd line is not working. I'm wondering if I've done something wrong or if it's not possible to use instant 2nd line with distributed dialtone. I've contacted Ooma support about this and they were CLUELESS!! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Use a duplex splitter (like the one that came with your ooma) to combine the phone + wall port before feeding into your walljack, then your Scout would work.

Do you have DSL? DSL and the HPNA that the scout uses don't play well together if on the same pair of wires.
