Hi everyone. I am having a little issue with homedistribution hoping someone can help me solve. I have it setup from modem to ooma to router. I have already disconnected the lines from the box outside also. Everything works perfectly when I plug the phone directly into Ooma. However, when I plug Ooma into the wall and my phone plugged in elsewhere in the house, I am having a bit of a problem. I am still able to dial out from my phone. However, the phone itself does not ring when I call to it while Ooma works. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for your help!

How much of a load are you putting on the phone line?
The Ooma phone port is limited to 5 REN.
Look on the bottom of your phones to get the REN number and add them all together.
It's best to not have any old style phones with mechanical ringers.

Also, make sure Ooma's "Phone" port is connected to the walljack. Ooma's "Wall" port doesn't do anything.
