Thanks for your insight.
I currently use my home's phone wiring to distribute the Ooma dialtone but it appears I will not have the ability unless I rewire or use splitters as you have noted.
I'm thinking I will need to position the Ooma base behind my router and connect a DECT 6 phone base as you have described? I won't know until I get into the house and subsequently have the cable internet service configured exactly where my router will be positioned.
Although...I'm not thinking I could plug in my Ooma base anywhere within the house (behind a switch) as the router would take care of things upstream? In other words I would not be bound by the physical location of the router relative to where the Ooma needed to be connected?

If you want your Ooma away from modem & router, you can use Ooma wifi adapter (if Telo) or powerline ethernet adapter, or wifi bridge... see what I use: /viewtopic.php?f=5&t=13450&start=20#p97898
Follow-up question...would this work with the Ooma Hub (vs. the Telo)?lbmofo wrote:The easiest is to just plug a DECT 6 phone base into your Ooma so you can have numerous handsets around the house getting your Ooma service.
Wanted to report this is working brilliantly.

Hopefully the Ooma Hub isn't completely phased out anytime soon...
