1 line i want used only off the hub, the hub is connected directly to the router, i want to use it as a main house line
1 line i want used only off the scout, such as just an office or business line; connect to a wireless jack.
i have NO PHONEJACKS available, i purchased an RCA® Wireless Phone Jack System Model: RC940. the scout is connected to one end of the jacks. the ooma is connected to the other end.
how should i set up my system?
what gets connected where?
when i plug in my scout into the rca jack, all the buttons on the bottom row of the scout stay solid red.
is this even possible.
thanks for your help.

Set the hub and the scout side by side.playsccr wrote:the wall ports run off the same circuit breaker.
Connect a short phone cable from the hub's wall port to the scout's wall port.
Connect a phone to the phone port of the hub.
Connect another phone to the phone port of the scout.
Go to my.ooma.com and configure the scout as a personal device.
Assign the the office number to the scout personal device.
Wait 5 minutes.
Does it now work the way that you want?

I'm not sure what you mean. The "Wall" ports I was referring to are the ones on the back of the Hub and the Scout. You use a standard phone cord to connect them to each other. Connect phones (cordless or wired) to the phone ports on the Hub and Scout.playsccr wrote:the wall ports run off the same circuit breaker.
previously i was connecting a phone cord from the hub to the jack and then in other room the jack to the scout. so the only connection between the hub and scout was via the phone jacks.
You said you didn't have a house jack available. If you did you could connect the Hub & Scout's wall ports to each other via house wiring (which explains the "wall port" terminology). I don't know if your RCA wireless jacks will work with the Hub & Scout for that purpose, but give it a try and let us know.
