I'm guessing that it wouldn't work because I've already given it a shot, but I was wondering if there was any way to get ooma to work at like a public library or some other form of public internet provider area, would there be anyway to make it work. I'm not really all that technically oriented, just thought I'd ask and give it a shot. I was wondering if I brought a router and plugged that into the library's line and then my ooma into that? Or should I just give up ;)

Since your library already has a router connected to the network port, all you need to do is bring in the ooma hub and plug it in. IF the library doesn't have ports or vpn blocked, and on dhcp, you should get a connection.

I'm thinking the Librarian is not going to be too happy about someone talking on a phone in the library.

My library only offers wireless internet for laptops. You have to use the desktops they provide if you want a hard wired connection.

no, in my the library there is cable connection port and I can go to a isolated room to talk. What do i need to do to get it to work then? I plug it in and the 1 and 2 buttons just stay lit up. Why is that?

1 and 2 means it can't connect to the network. Ask the Library IT person if they are blocking the outbound ports that the unit uses.

My guess it's all blocked. I can't imagine a network connection wide open in an isolated room for just anyone to use. Then again......
