Make sure that you reserve an IP address for the Ooma Wireless Wi-Fi Dongle in your Router.Ringfinger wrote: For some reason, I still can't access the Ooma wirelessly by typing in the IP address I assigned it even though when I plug in via ethernet I can see the port 80 forwarding rule. Can anyone walk me through this process in regards to having the wi-fi dongle attached instead of ethernet? Seems like it should not make a difference but bottom line, how do I ensure the static IP is accessible via wi-fi? Seems it is not being forwarded somehow.
Access Ooma setup. Click on the advanced tab. Put a check mark in the box located in front of:
Allow access to web interface from WIRELESS port, which is located just above Port Forwarding.
Click on Update. Then type in you computer browser window, the IP address that you reserved for your Ooma Wireless Wi-Fi Dongle, example: http://192.186.0.xxx
Access Ooma Setup. Click on the Status tab, then the Wireless tab under Status.Ringfinger wrote: As far as dropping out, I have 85 to 100/100 signal quality when I look in setup.ooma.com. About 60-75% signal strength which I assume should be fine?
Go down to Signal Level. Example mine is -41 dBm. The lower the number (towards zero) the better.
"Typical "MAXIMUM" received signal power (−10 to −30 dBm) of wireless network"
