My cable outlets, especially the one I utilize for my home office internet connection (ie where the cable modem is located), are nowhere near my house phone jacks.
In order to install OOMA I have to connect it next to my computer in my home office, which is in a different room, and approximately 15 feet away (in a direct line) from the nearest phone jack.
How are all of you completing this installation? I have a wireless phone system with three phones that I want to use, plus I purchased a Scout. I need both TIVO and my Dish DVRs to use the OOMA service as I plan to completely disconnect my AT&T service and they also use phone lines.
What can I do? Am I the only one who has encountered this problem?
Thank you for any advice!
There is no way you can drag a telephone cord to the next nearest phone jack? (say drill a small hole through a wall?)
If all fails, you may wish to try these wireless wall jacks:

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
As always YMMV
My router plugs into Ooma hub and the Ooma phone line out goes to a fax machine, and from the fax machine to my cordless phone system. The phone jack is hella far and I don't want to run the long wire across the walls. I can't move the hub, because then I loose the connection to the fax machine. Any solutions?
I have tried searching on Ooma's site, Amazon and Google but I don't see an actual device to purchase.
Could you please share what exactly it is that you purchased?
These devices can carry an ethernet or telephone signal over your house (120v) wiring. The result is an RJ11 or RJ45 jack at a wall plug close to your needs...I don't know what a HomePlug device is...
See here for a typical example....

The example that niknak posted looks to me like a wireless phone jack. However, earlier in the thread more than one person stated that a wireless phone jack wouldn't work.
Why would Ooma refer to "HomePlug" if they simply mean a wireless phone jack?
What am I missing here?
