Hi, I hope one of you Ooma veterans can help.

I've had my Hub with Core service for 18 months with no problems. But a couple of days ago the Hub apparently just broke down. The Ooma tab is blinking red and the 1-2 and play-forward forward lights are red.

My Internet service is fine. I'm hopeful that this is not a Hub hardware failure, and that the Hub can be reset somehow.

Has this happened to any of you, and if so what did you do?

Many thanks.

I live in a condo with built-in ethernet-style wall connection for Internet, which is included in my HOA. So my set up is simply wall outlet to Hub modem port via ethernet cable, with phone attached to the Hub. I have tried but cannot access

Hmmm, that's a new one. Somewhere upstream of you - perhaps in your HOA's network closet - is a router; my first suspicions are with some sort of port blocking associated with that. The other concern is that you can't access setup. Is your computer connected to your Hub's home port?

You're right. There is a router in my closet. It's full of various wires and flashing lights but all I'm comfortable doing is cutting the power and then restoring. I've done that already, hoping it would "reset" things. It did not.

The computer is in another room from the Hub, plugged into the same type of wall ethernet port.

This set-up was not addressed in the Ooma user guide scenarios, but I made it work thru trial and error and it's been fine up till now.

Connect a pc to the HOME port on the ooma hub. You can access from the browser of that pc. You may have to reboot the pc (or laptop) for the ooma hub to assign the pc/laptop an ip.

Is it a router in your closet or a switch? If it is a switch, there must be a router somewhere in the apartment complex. Possibly they made some changes and blocked ports? You may have to contact who ever might be in charge and ask.

Try a diff ethernet outlet connection. My brother setup is this way. The entire house is wired via ethernet and all he has to do is plug the ooma hub into one of the ethernet outlet and it comes up working. Make sure the ethernet outlet is "live"
