Hi all,

Can I connect 2 Ooma systems to 1 cable internet connection?

Thanks for the replies!

One internet connection can support several Ooma devices, just as it can support more than one computer.

Just be aware that if you put them in series you must change the IP address range that one of them issues or they won't work.

I would suggest putting both the ooma devices behind a router. I've done this with mine and had no issues. You could put them one after the other without a router but the networking configuration will be more difficult & I think you'd have better luck setting up QoS (assuming you had a router that would support this) at a single point on the router than on each of the ooma devices. You can pick up a decent router for a reasonable price.

Thanks for the replies, but only 1 Ooma can be connected to a cable modem? How do we connect 2 Ooma's to a cable modem?

Most routers include a built-in switch of 4 or more LAN ports, so you would just plug both Ooma's into an available LAN port. The router's WAN or Internet port would be connected to your modem.
