But I am not sure the problems I am having are with MJ, my PC or my I/P provider.
I tried going to a site that supposedly would do a pre-assessment of my connection but it says it cannot complete because:
1) Unable to measure jitter
2) Unable to measure Packet loss
Any ideas on how I can test to see if ooma will improve my VOIP ?
In the middle of calls, sometimes one of the parties will be unable to hear the other or there will be a period of dead space for about 5 seconds. Very annoying. Happens on a long call. > 15 minutes or about once a week on the silence thing.
My connection looks like this:
I/P provider is ATT Uverse cable
Cable modem is upstairs.
PC is connected to modem via wireless with Linksys Wireless-G 2.4GHZ
Phone is a Panasonic KX-TG1032 DECT 6.0
Downstairs are 2 panasonic wireless phones
Telo with 2 Handsets, a Linx, and a Safety Phone
Telo2 with 2 Handsets and a Linx
Just wanted to let you know that OOMA comes with 30 days money back guarantee. What I could suggest is pick one up from a Big box retailer like Costco, they have quite a liberal customer satisfaction policy.
And like others suggested. connect your OOMA box directly to the Modem or to the router. Here are couple of ways you can connect your ooma for optimal connection.
Yup, and just get a cheap wireless phone with DECT 6.0 technology or something. I don't know if Telo phones use DECT 6.0 too? Ooma works great for me.Groundhound wrote:If you are running MJ on the wireless connected PC, Ooma will certainly improve your call quality. The Ooma Hub or Telo is independent of your PC and is connected by wire directly to your modem (where it can provide QoS prioritization) or to your router.
