Use the WAN IP address of the Ooma box that was assigned by the router.

I am, http://192.168.50.3. I went in and gave the Ooma box a static IP addy.

When you set up the static IP address did you also set the mask, gateway, and DNS addresses?
Is your computer's IP address in the 192.168.50.x subnet?

The best way to do that, if your router supports it, is to give the Ooma box a static reservation in the router based on it's MAC address and leave the Ooma box in DHCP mode.

Yes, I've setup the subnet mask, gateway and DNS to match my network settings.

Yes, my computer is on the 192.168.50.x network. I had to do this due to VPN issues at work with our DHCP on the VPN pool.

I don't think dd-wrt allows the reservation based on MAC.

Sure it does.

Turn your vpn off.
When a vpn is running ALL traffic is sent down the vpn pipe.
