I just upgraded from my old ATT separate modem and a Linksys wireless router to an all in one Att 2wire modem/router. I see a huge improvement in speed BUT I have lost my one computer from my network. It is the one that, following the directions posted here, is connected to my router THROUGH the ooma Hub. I ran a line from the router to the Hub and then from the Hub to my computer. Ooma still works great, as it has for a couple of years! Unfortunately, I couldn't see the computer on my network AND the network printer! If I disconnect one of the four lines running to the router and hook my computer in question directly to the router instead of through the Hub, I can again see the computer and printer. Any ideas since I would like to keep all four devices hooked to the net without employing another switch?

You will need a switch.
The computer connected to the Ooma Home port is double NATed and thus is not in the same subnet as the other devices.

Thanks, I was afraid of that! :P

Like I said, that sucks that it won't work but I can't complain too much since ooMa is great. I have a spare switch anyway but just didn't want MORE wires running behind my console!!!

Dang, I thought when we're all dead the one with the most wires behind the desk is the winner.

Dang, I've been operating on the assumption that the one with the most books wins. My wife, alas, disagrees- she also loves books but will only let me keep a few bookshelves worth at one time. Fortunately, the books in my computer don't count towards the "clutter" quotient. :)
