I am using the Ooma hub connected to the house wiring with a scout connected to my phone. Everything was working well until today. With the phone connected to the scout, I get a regular dialtone and access to a landline. When I connect the phone to the hub, it works fine.
Incoming calls show up on the hub & scout but don't get picked up by the phone.
Seems like there might be something wrong with the scout.
The scout was in a different room with the wall line connecting to the scout and the scout to the phone.
Everything was working fine and it all of a sudden gave me the problems described above. The hub works fine w/the phone connected directly to it. It is when I try to use the scout in a different room that I have a problem.
FYI, I tried connecting the scout directly to the Ooma hub's wall port using a regular phone cable but the phone gives no ring tone even though the scout shows a blue light.
If I have to use dedicated wiring, how come it worked for a year now has problems?
