This may be the wrong forum, but my issue is related to call quality.
Ooma is working fine, and I have great internet line stats. My problem is that for several reasons my unit is on one side of my home and my cordless Panasonic base is plugged into it. Across the house I get very weak cordless signal - I would love to relocate my Panasonic 5.8 Gh phone, but there's no way to move the Ooma to the middle of the house - even with the wireless adapter I get poor Ooma quality --- I think this is all due to the size of the house and thick walls.

Any suggestions to improve would be appreciated.

Seems you are having issues with Ooma wifi adapter in the middle of the house, you can try a powerline adapter so that you can place Ooma in the middle of the house. I recommend the D-Link DHP-303 model. /viewtopic.php?f=5&t=13450&start=20#p97898

I'd upgrade your cordless phone system to a DECT 6.0 as well.

Or upgrade to the new Ooma HD2 DECT radio handsets.

Another option is to feed Ooma's dialtone to the house phone wiring so you can setup Ooma at one end of house and then be able to plug in your phone base near where you talk most often. Need to make sure your house phone wiring is physically disconnected from the telephone company though: viewtopic.php?t=14843#p103582
