I tried plugging Ooma in after my router (ie: Net-->modem-->router-->Ooma) but call quality was terrible (clipping every second or so)...

I now have Ooma plugged in directly to the moden (Net-->Modem-->Ooma-->wireless router).

I typically run some older apps (games, etc...) that like to have an open port to the internet, so I would set up a virtual server on my wireless router for that port to get around the firewall for my desktop computer.

When I do the same thing I've always done for my desktop (set up the virtual server on the wireless) the app(s) I'm using still tell me I'm being firewalled in some way.

The only new thing in the system is the Ooma base, is this the "intelligent" prioritizing of Ooma that is getting in the way? (I am not using the phone line, nor have I in the past day or so... I assume it should be letting everything through w/out problems.)

Is there a way to turn off the Ooma switching function to see if it, indeed, is the problem?

Log into the ooma hub

http://setup.ooma.com

and put your routers WAN IP address in ooma's DMZ.
It's on the Advanced page.

Did that help?

Ah, sweet. Now I have "power"... I will log in and start messing around... (I suppose I should go back and read the manual some time, the setup instructions were too darn "friendly" to often tell me things I was curious about, I'm a high-information type guy the more the better...)

I'll try to post to say if it fixes it.

OK, my router is able to tell me the IP addresses it is assigning everything on my network. However, I'm unable to tell what address Ooma is assigning to my wireless network.

Is there any way to get Ooma to tell me what IP address it is giving the router? (I know what my network is assigning the router, because it is running my main network, but don't see how to tell what my router thinks is its network...)

Log into the ooma hub

http://setup.ooma.com

and select the Advanced page.
Set it like this:

Home Port
IP Address: . . . 172.27.35.1
Netmask: . . . 255.255.255.0
DHCP Configuration
Start Address: . . . 172.27.35.2
End Address: . . . 172.27.35.2
DMZ
DMZ Address: . . . 172.27.35.2

Then reboot your router.
Log into your router and look at the status page.
Your router's WAN/Internet IP address should now be 172.27.35.2

The computers on your LAN will still have 192.168.x.x addresses.

Ah, sweet. Sure, restrict the available addresses to a single one and then I'll know what address my router has... thanks.
