I plugged in a fairly standard USB Wireless adapter -- Netgear WG111T which I use all the time.
It is not recognized by the USB port.
It would be very nice to be able to locate the Ooma Telo somewhere besides the DSL Modem/Router when I travel.
I have a very good wireless connection from my laptop to the DSL Modem/Router.
Can I network the Ooma Telo downstream from my laptop like this:
Internet DSL == DSL Modem/Router == Wireless NIC in laptop == Ethernet NIC in laptop == Ooma Telo
Internet DSL == DSL Modem/Router == Wireless USB Adapter in Ooma Telo == Ethernet NIC in laptop.
What is the purpose of the USB connector? I cannot find any documentation on the subject.
Thanks for your attention.
At this stage, it is mostly just reserved for future use. There has been some speculation that one option may be exactly what you have requested so that it can get its internet feed wirelessly instead of via wired cable. Note that another option to achieve this would be a pair of powerline network adapters, or a wireless bridge which provides a RJ45 at the other end.SomaCat wrote:What is the purpose of the USB connector?

Another possible use for the USB port will be to provide bluetooth headset support. Beyond that, it is mostly speculation what other features may get added.
I use mine for my USB Jack.SomaCat wrote:How does the USB port on Ooma Telo work?

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
