I can connect my phone wire to the phone port in the scout plug in the power cord then what? All I get is 4 red lights. Simple question. Is there a simple answer.
Thanks in advance.
I have a separate phone plugged into the Scout to utilize line 2.
Hope this answers your question.
It should always be a first step to try the Scout directly off the Ooma hub to verify that all is well.
Once that step is complete, if the Scout is to be located elsewhere in the home and hookup via the house wiring fails, it's a dead "ringer" that there's a problem with the home's wiring that is interfering with the successful operation of the Scout.
Since many folks, myself include, are using wireless handsets, it makes a "whole lotta sense" to keep the base stations together right next to the Hub and Scout, all tied together, thereby foregoing the house wiring in favor of a wireless solution.
I've a feeling this is the implementation that the Ooma Telos will be pushing, given the limited coverage I've read about it on the net, with matching wireless handsets available to be paired with the Hub.
I do get a dial tone and if If I call out from my main line the caller ID on receiving phone displays my fax line number not the main line number.
I think I am basically screwed here. There are not any more outputs or inputs I can use. My big mistake was switching my business phone line to ooma because something like this might happen. Now I don't receive any calls. Help Please! What do I do?
I have no idea how you knew that but nice going!
