Router speed and OOMA quality

Post by Ricker » Sun Dec 16, 2012 1:50 pm

Does anyone know if the speed of your router affects the performance of OOMA?

What do you mean by Router speed?

Probably the Router speed has little to do with the Ooma performance. But a newer later design route may help with some problems.

I'm referring to the wireless speeds such as up to 450mbps+450mbps on certain routers.

I'm also referring to network bandwidth, such as 2.4 GHz + 5 GHz on certain routers.

The Ooma devices need such a little part of this bandwidth that higher bandwidths probably don't matter much. Wi-Fi (802.11N) really does help.

What is important is that the Internet signal, as it reaches the Ooma device, must be consistant and stable.
