Via IP address is fine too as long as you DHCP reserve one for your Ooma.

I assigned a static address to the ooma. It's just setting up the QoS for it that I need help with this my post to the buffalo router board. Although, I dont see the ooma as a dhcp client when I look, it shows up as An active dhcp client and not a dhcp client however I think that is insignificant. I have the static ip assigned And I know the ooma is functional.

A static reservation must be within the table.

You can change the DHCP table limits to whatever you want. I always start it at .2 and end at .99.
I have a planned network. 99% of my devices have static reservations so I always know where they are. I had 39 devices at last count.

Can you use static reservation instead?

Yes, I am using a static address that I assigned in my router. It is working as I can see the reservation I made and it shows up under DHCP Clients when I look at my network but nor under active DHCP clients. Whatever that means because the ooma is working and I entered the correct MAC ID and assigned that the static IP. I just now need to set the QoS for that static IP address.

Can anyone help me with setting QoS with DDWRT as the firmware on my router? I googled but I must tell you, it is quite overwhelming. I just need to know how to set it up (I have a static IP assigned) and what numbers to use?

Help?

Click the NAT/QoS tab
Click the QoS tab
Click Enable after Start QoS
Go down to MAC Priority and enter the MAC address of the Internet port of your Telo which is one higher than the one on the label.
Click Add
Click the Priority pull down arrow for the just created entry and select Premium.
Click Apply Settings at the bottom of the page.

It doesn't matter what the IP address is.

I have it (ooma) connected via wi fi dongle, does that make a difference as far as Mac address to enter? Do I just enter the mac I'd for the dongle? As far As speed, I don't enter any? I just enter it as priority?

Use the MAC address of the WiFi adapter.
There are no speed entries. The Telo gets top priority when it is active and everything else uses what is left.

I have no priority pulldown under MAC Priority, just under services priority. I have a space for max kbps up and down that I seem to need and add values for, now what?
