got a newly installed ooma system, but due to the ip address magic it does, seems to conflict with the ability to set up an xbox 360 as a windows media center extender. Tried to play with the DMZ zone, but don't want to mess up the settings too much before I get a real answer on this. The ooma is in a 172 address range, and my verizon fios actiontec router is pumping out 192 dhcp's (xbox is in this section along with the router as the gateway), so I don't think the two are playing nice together. I am able to access the internet thru the 360 and log onto xbox live, just not able to use it as an extender. I'm running Vista Home premium (i know, but it came with the box). Don't think its a firewall issue as I tried with all firewalls disabled and still no luck.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Yes the Vista pc is hooked into the ooma hub, and if I do an ipconfig, i do get an ooma range. Yet if I look at my network, the vista pc shows up on my verizon router with a 192 address, so I'm a bit confused. Is it doing some sort of ip conversion I'm unaware of? The oooma installation instructions said I had to plug my pc into it, wasn't sure if I could get it to work any other way. Verizon router to Ooma, ooma to pc. All my other devices are working off the verizon wireless router.
I do use wireless in the house but probably have an extra wireless router hanging around too, so if you don't mind diagramming a hookup that you think would work, i'd much appreciate it.
My setup is cable modem, router attached to cable modem, ooma hub attached to router. All my computers, Xbox, etc connect to my router. I don't have anything attached to my ooma Hub other than the Scout and phones.
