My newly installed Ooma hub & scout: After installing Ooma, my cable Internet became so incredibly slow that I felt I was back on dialup! This is unacceptable. Has anyone else expereinced this problem? I have Comcast cable hi-speed Internet with a Linksys gigabit router. The Ooma device is between my modem & router. The ethernet cable supplied by Ooma is cat 5e. I'm using cat 6 with all of my other equipment. Does this mean Ooma is not gigabit-ready or capable? Thanks.

Ooma is 10/100 only.

Connect a computer to the Home port and connect to http://setup.ooma.com
If you are using a DNS service like OpenDNS that won't work. Use http://172.27.35.1 instead.

Go to the Advanced page and set the download and upload QOS values to 0 which disables QOS. You don't need QOS with a high speed cable connection. The default upload speed is 384 which tells the hub that your maximum upload speed is 384K.

Most likely, you didn't power cycle your cable modem after changing its connected device. If you have a battery backup for the cable modem, you need to disconnect that to really do a power cycle.
