I would like to use this setup: DSL modem with wireless -> Ooma -> PC computer. Under this setup both computers can access the internet just fine, and the Ooma works, but I can't share files. The Ooma is blocking the home network communications.
ISP Protocol: PPPoE
ATM Encapsulation: LLC Bridged
Modem IP Address: 126.96.36.199
DNS Address #1 188.8.131.52
DNS Address #2 184.108.40.206
The modem assignes the PC 192.168.0.2 and the laptop 192.168.0.3
How do I set up the Ooma to allow the network traffic? Do I need to forward ports? How?
From the setup you describe, it's not really possible to share files as you wish. Being on a separate network, you should be able to share files over protocols which work over the internet such as FTP, but you won't be able to do things you normally can on a local network, like browse folders or share files & printers. It's really no different at this point than trying to connect to your next door neighbor who is on the same DSL system.
Unfortunately the complication is far more than just opening a few ports on the ooma. You need to get used to using Internet-type protocols or have your devices on the same network (either all before or all after the ooma hub).
