Ooma locking up IP address

Post by danmiller3 » Sun Nov 21, 2010 4:08 am

Hi folks -
Wanted to see if others were experiencing this. It has only started happening in the last 2-3 weeks and is infrequent, but has happened twice now. I have an Ooma Telo that is connected directly to my cable modem. From there I have the Ooma connected to an Airport Extreme. Twice now I've woken up in the morning with my Extreme locked up with no IP address and the only resolution has been resetting the Ooma. It seems something is going on with the Telo to screw with the IP address assignment.

Any thoughts?

Do you have the Ooma configured to use it's built in MAC address?
If not, do it now.
A cable modem accepts the first MAC address presented to it after power on.
It will ignore all others.
