In order to get to setup.ooma.com without ethernet connection to "home network" port, you'd setup port forwarding on the Ooma device (have to connect to "home network" port to do this). viewtopic.php?t=11921#p83732
If you connection is Modem-Router-Ooma, an IP address is reserved in the router, with a permanent lease, for the Ooma Telo. Then the Quality of Service "High Priority" is set for the IP address that was assigned to the Ooma Telo. Router's all configure a little bit differently, but this procedure should give you the idea. In most cases the router's owner's manual will give you a detailed set of instructions. The Reserved Ooma Telo IP address is also used for Port forwarding below, to access Ooma Setup without connecting computer to the Ooma Telo Home port.9138147349 wrote:I am down at the bottom of the recommendations in the QOS section of my router. I have set the "high Priority" for TCP port 80. Do I need to do it for the MAC address also?
Using a Modem-Router-Ooma connection, temporarily connect a network cable from the Ooma Telo Home port, to the wired LAN port of a computer. If Wi-Fi is turned on in the computer, temporally turn Wi-Fi off in the computer. Reboot the computer. Type http://172.27.35.1 in the computer browser window. The Ooma Setup pages opens. Click on the Advanced tab. Go down to Port Forwarding and click on Add New Rule. Fill in the blanks as follow. Start Port: 80, End Port: leave blank, Type: select TCP, Forward to IP Address: 172.27.35.1, Forward to Port: leave blank. Click on Add Rule. Now with a computer connected to your Router, in the computer browser window, type in the IP address that you previously reserved in the router, for the Ooma Telo. Example: http://192.168.xxx.xxx . Ooma Setup will open.9138147349 wrote: Also, should I be able to access setup.ooma.com from my home computer with ooma's home network unplugged? Sorry if these questions/steps are self-evident. I am a trial-and-error type of guy when it comes to computer tech.
Thanks for you informative help,
