I have charter cable, the cable modem and my ooma box are in one room - but I want to move my computer and phone to another room. And I'm not allowed to run cables into that new room.

I have a usb wifi dongel for the computer - but what can I do with ooma? I can just use a cordless phone, but I like to have access to the VM on the ooma box.

I tried to just plug the ooma box into the ethernet jack on back of my computer, but it didn't work.


Is there another solution?

Thanks!

Sadly I have the earlier ooma device - and I don't think their USB dongle works with it.

I've no experience with them, but look into "ethernet over powerline" adapters.
