I am using the Motorola SBG6580 modem/router with the default IP address which
is 192.68.0.1, my Ooma Telo only completes the boot up when I disable the
firewall. If I leave the Motorola firewall on low, medium or high protection it
will never complete the boot up and the Ooma flower will just keep blinking for
days. Do I need to do something to the router fire wall to allow Ooma to pass
thru?
Thank you for any ideas you have about this problem.

I don't have an Ooma device [yet] but I'm interested in it.

Given your question is regarding the Ooma VoIP device, the best
and most knowledgeable venue to re-post your question would be the
comp.dcom.telecom group.  Note that's been a moderated group since
1981 so it may be a day or so before your re-posting would appear
in the group.

It would be extremely useful to also mention the following URL in
your re-post so that those unfamiliar with the SBG6580 can see its
capabilities:

Also, if your computer is a Windows system and connected to the
SBG6580 via USB, mention that since most people will assume a UNIX,
Linux or Mac computer connection via Ethernet per page 4 of the
SBG6580 User Guide just in case it makes a difference.
