Strange problem no dialtone? :(

Post by sid » Sat Nov 14, 2009 8:14 pm

Since yesterday, people trying to call me say they get my voicemail.No ringtone. I tried myself and found out. Restarted modem/router/hub. Now the blue light is gone and I get a blinking light which means OOMa is not able to get online. The router itself works fine.What could be wrong?I have restarted the hub several times. Someone please help!!

EDIT: After trying everything tried replacing the network cable (that came with the OOMA package) and voila it works!Wonder how that flat cable ended up becoming defective in 2 months..

I'm glad that it was something as simple as a bad cable. I still have the flat cable from my hub and my Telo neatly coiled in the box they came in. I think the flat ones are cool looking and might be great in some situations, but I needed only a 12" one for the hub and a 2' one for the Telo. :cool:

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
