Any idea on how to get the Ooma to operate on a college campus? It cannot have DHCP or NAT because that will mess up the entire campus network because it cannot give out IP Addresses by itself, it needs to act as a bridge. I have come to the assumption that as long as I don't use the Home port I will be fine. To connect to the Stanford Network, they require the MAC/ethernet address of the device. I have given them both the address on the back of the device and the address that I get when I connect through the Home port. This so far has not worked. The ooma currently goes through the light cycle...

Keep in mind that the Ooma device require outbound ports to be opened

DNS (53), GPRS (3386), HTTPS (443), Net Data Mgmt (10000-20000), NTP (123), OpenVPN (1194), Sec. Virtual WrkSpace (3480) and Syslog (514).

If their FW is as strict as mind, then you have to setup a FW rules to allow for outbound.

Good luck

Ah, I used to be a RCC a some years ago. The MODEM port is set to use DHCP by default. Is the Hub getting an IP address off the MODEM port from the Stanford network? You can check this by going to the page and clicking on "Status". Next to "MODEM:", you should see something like "Connected : [<ip address>]"

If it's not, you'll need to contact your RCC or rescomp to re-check that the correct mac address appears in the NetDB.

By any chance, OP make the OOMA works on the Stanford Campus?
I already purchased my second OOMA hub for my son, he will be attending Stanford this fall, I am hoping to get lucky without going thru lots of troubleshooting work.
If there is any tip to make it work, please post it here. Otherwise, I'll be busy troubleshooting OOMA and network coming this fall.
