Thunderbird
The hub is connected to the modem and the upload speed is 4.18 mbps and the download speed is 14.7 mbps so what you are saying is for me to make the following changes to the ooma setup page.
Upstream internet speed 33440 Kbps (0 to disable)
Downstream Internet speed 11760 Kbps (0 to disable)
I might add that if the incomming call goes to voice mail and i pick up (then) the phone, it does not go to reboot but works every time.

Downstream and Upstream numbers are reversed.
Downstream would be 33440 and Upstream would be 11760.

The lower number is always the Upstream (Upload) and the higher number is aways the Downstream (Download).

If these numbers or different (reversed) when you run http://speedtest.phonepower.com/ , then there is a problem with your Modem or Internet provider signal.

If your router is connected to Ooma's "home internet" port, then that behavior is expected while Ooma is going through reboot. Have you tried to get another power adapter for your Ooma?

Harry, please forgive me if you have already answered this but I could not find it in any of your previous posts.

1. What kind of Internet provider do you have? Is it cable, fiber, or DSL.

2. How is your phone connected to the ooma device? Is it a cordless base or wired phone that connects only to the PHONE port on the ooma or are you using your home wiring to distribute dial tone?

The reason I ask is that if you are using DSL and distributing your dial tone over your existing home wiring, we may have found your problem. If not, then please forgive the interruption in working with two of the forum's top technical people, lbmofo and thunderbird. These guys are the best of the best.
