internet crawling, unplugged Ooma...works great, help

Post by mikeyd » Mon Dec 06, 2010 5:39 am

First, I'm not very computer savy.

My FIOS internet is crawling and comes to a halt when using placing calls with my Ooma.

I have this following setup: FIOS Actiontec Router/Modum first, my hardwired desktop and Ooma are plugged into this router/modum. To be clear - the home computer is not hooked into the HOME port on the Ooma, they are each plugged into an open plug on the router/modum.

Ooma tech support told me there was nothing wrong from their end, and FIOS tech support said the same.

I obviously can't have it where the Ooma stops the internet when on the phone and slows it considerably when idle.

Unplugging the Ooma restores fast internet speeds.

Thanks, Mike

Try this. Even if you have nothing connected to the Home port of Ooma. Setup your Ooma to use Built in Modem port address: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=9536#p66155
