On several occasions during the past couple of weeks I've noticed that my internet speed drops ... pages load very slowly, for example. I'm concerned that with the Ooma positioned first after the cable modem it might interfere with distribution throughout the balance of my network. And by the way, I've restarted the Ooma on 3 of these occasions and found that page loads are soon back to their usual speed.
Ooma seems to be working just fine otherwise ...

Well, unfortunately that did not work. Leaving me to suspect that the problem is with the Ooma itself. I'm again on the verge of giving up on Ooma ... it has been one thing after another to the point where I have to wonder if its worth the hassle. Anyone care to talk me out of it ?

After you done what thunderbird suggested, make sure you reboot everthing from modem, ooma, router. Even the computer that you setup your Ooma with.

If you still find issues with your internet slowing down, connect your Ooma to your router. Don't need to have it between the modem and the router; without doing anything to your Ooma, it should work fine and your internet should be as it worked before.

Also, if you are using one of the older 2.4 GHz or 5.8 GHz cordless phone, need to upgrade to newer DECT 6 phone system since DECT 6 would not interfere with your router.

Connecting Modem-Router-Ooma should eliminate the Ooma Telo from pulling down your Home's LAN. In this case the Ooma Telo Internet port is connected with a network cable to one of the Router LAN ports. Nothing is connected to the Ooma Telo Home port, except to temporarily connect a computer to access Ooma Setup, if change/adjustments are required.

This is exactly how I connected my Ooma in the first place, but Ooma strongly advised me to set it up Modem - Ooma - Router. I'll give it a try and report back.

I have an ooma Hub and a Telo connected this way and it never slows the internet down, even when a call is placed.
