Cons: frequent problem with no dial tone & connection
"After cursing the wi-fi adaptor included in the Ooma telo air package, I thought this might be the answer. But alas, another piece of junk. Frequent problems with no dial-tone that is only solved with unplugging and plugging back in the Ooma Linx. Will be returning. So far the only reliable method is connecting telephone directly to the Ooma base itself."
"I connected my Ooma linx in the basement for my alarm system. I was pretty spectacle about it because of all the problems people had commented on when using this (having to plug it in and out until the light showed, connecting but not working with an alarm system). To my relief it worked without a hitch!
I called my alarm company before I bought the ooma telo to make sure the system was compatible.
When I called to have the system checked, the rep asked me where our ooma was located. She said it needed to be in the basement beside the alarm. She hadn't heard of the linx before. At this point I was REALLY hoping that it would work. How silly would I feel after calling and saying it would work? hah
I did a reset and everything worked the way it should. Happy endings all around!
In terms of setting up, it was extremely easy. When I plugged it into the wall it didn't blink at first and I thought I got a dud. A few seconds later it started to flash. I turned the signal on the telo, and they connected right away.
The linx then updated. It took about 5 minutes to do so, then it went a solid blue color. I unplugged it and placed it in the basement. The rest is...well you know :P
I would definitely recommend this for your telo, there's lots of value in it. The alarm company wanted $200 for a wireless receiver and then required us to pay an additional $10 a month in monitoring for it. No thanks!"
