The question is does this run go direct to the feed point OR does it connect to a jack on the first floor?
The original concept of daisy chaining was to leave the feed point and hit every jack in the house.

A cheap multimeter is a very useful tool to use for trouble shooting.
One last thing to try:
I'm wondering that since before you started using the Ooma Telo, all home wall jacks functioned properly and had dial tone; if some one had wired the second floor phone feed cable, to pick up the dial tone ahead of or on the street side of the Demarc Box Universal Line Module.
If you can follow the phone cable that comes in from the street, into the Demarac Box, and see if it just plugs in some where in the Demarac box. If does, tag the cable as to where it is connected, then unplug the cable coming in from the street and stow it. Then switch the Universal Line Module switch back to the On position and see if you get Ooma dial tone on your second floor phone jacks.
No I wouldn't disturb the green metal box. I would look for the feed from the street in the Demarc box. If the street feed is just connected to a plug or even individual wires, located in the Demarc Box, that can easily be disconnected, identify the wires as to where the wires are attached, tag them, then disconnect them from where ever they are attached in the Demarc box. Then I'd try switching the Universal Line Module switch back on. The see if there is dial tone on the second floor of your house.zincmann wrote:Oh I wasnt giving up lol I just needed a phone solution and couldnt wait any longer, was going to keep on trying. So you are saying, so I understand it, I need to locate the Cat 5 cable that comes in from the street box which is in a small green metal post box sitting between my neighbors house and mine, and essentially disconnect it since I know it is connected to that Universal Line Module so that would actually disconnect the potential of any Phone service to utilize the Demarc box unless those wires are plugged in again correct?
