1) Is your Internet connection working properly?
2) Is your connection DSL? If so, which device is handling PPPoE authentication?
3). Open Airport Utility, click on the Airport device shown in the right hand portion of the window, now click on the orange status light; you will now see reason for the orange status in the window. What does it say? Please post a screen shot of this or just post the message.
Look forward to your reply.
My set up is a white ethernet chord connecting the modem to the Ooma port "To Internet".
(All Ooma lights become blue).
A black chord provided in the Ooma telo package connects the Ooma port "Home Network" with the Airport extreme (sun icon).
(The amber light on the Airport Extreme blinks amber and I cannot connect to the internet from my wireless laptop.
When I check the Airport Utility as suggested in 3), it says the Ethernet chord is disconnected.
If I exchange chords (black for white) in the same configuration as above, the Ooma blinks red.
I think the white chord is an ethernet chord and the black one provided from the Ooma telo package is a phone chord, not an ethernet chord.
Is an ethernet chord needed to connect the Ooma "Home Network" port with the Apple Extreme?
Do I need to set the Apple Extreme to "bridge"? Is so, how? Any suggestions?
