How to Login to Ooma Telo
As with any VoIP provider, seamless function with a residential VoIP device from Ooma is contingent upon ensuring the device is setup and functioning correctly. This includes the initial step of figuring out how to navigate the Ooma login console, which will offer both quick and easy account and profile access and enable the user to make any necessary changes.
Access to the log-in module allows a user to perform a plethora of functions after they sign in, including opting in and out of email correspondence, viewing service charge notifications, updating the account, changing the designated number or plan, reporting interruptions, viewing special offers, updating payment methods, adding minutes, and prepaying for international calls. Changes can be made at anytime once the login process is understood.

Ooma’s login page is the standard interactive entry point page, but it’s look has changed somewhat since Ashton Kutcher was the creative director. Don’t worry, though, those that favor the old look can always opt for the classic view. While most people setup the Ooma Telo device at their primary residence first, some users may find the lack of a responsiveness and mobile-friendliness a downside to the service.
Don’t Have An Ooma Account?
New users without an account should begin by creating an account by selecting the “activate new account” button. Users will then be prompted to enter the activation code that accompanied the Ooma Telo device’s packaging. The information provided in creating the account will then be used to login and make selections and changes to the account.
What If The Ooma Account Password Is Lost or Forgotten?
Lost and forgotten passwords can be frustrating. Ooma’s password recovery process is secure, but it’s still simple and quite efficient. To reset a password, the user can select “reset it” on the login page. Within a couple of minutes, Ooma will send an email to the address that was provided at registration. The email will contain instructions on how to do the password reset to regain access to the account.
Login To The Telo Router
The above login explanation applies to the Ooma account login process, but users will also need to understand how to login to their Ooma Telo Router to complete the installation process. This is a slightly more complicated process, especially for those with no to novice technical knowledge.

How To Find The Ooma Telo Router Login IP
The Ooma Telo Router is a network device, which means the first step is to get it recognized by the WiFi service’s or residential internet’s internal device. Find the IP address for the Ooma router, which should be either 192.168.1.1 or 172.27.35.1. An alternative to try if neither address works is setup.ooma.com.
Now, it’s time to confirm the router is detected. Power-on and connect both the router and another computer the the internet connection after confirming that neither have firewalls or a proxy that would prevent their detection. Open the command prompt on the computer to ping the IP address. One of the two addresses above should respond.
Login Process For Router
After confirming the Ooma IP, open a web browser of your choosing. Type in the IP on the search line. Hit enter. Users should see a pop-up box to enter their credentials in order to gain access to Ooma Telo Home.
Note that first time users may need to keep the default values of “unknown” for user password and username in that pop-up box. Once the login page is reached, users can then visit the Account Center to update their credentials for future use and change the internal login IP.
Possible Ooma Telo Login Problems
There are a couple of snags users may run into during the login process. These are usually related to browser settings, internet protocol, or device configuration.
One of the most common problems is a user’s browser not detecting the Ooma internal device IP, in which a message will appear to “diagnose connection problems.” If this happens, check that antivirus products and firewalls aren’t interfering with connectivity. Move on to the security settings for the browser to ensure they’re moderate to low and allow pop-ups. Higher security settings can always be restored after setup.
If all the above doesn’t fix the login problem, then the routers may need resetting. Begin by resetting the WiFi or internet router. Those unfamiliar with the process should call their internet provider for detailed instructions based on the type of device they’re using. If resetting the internet router doesn’t fix the problem, then it’s time to reset the Ooma Telo Router.
To reset the Ooma Telo Router, hold the reset button on the device with a paper clip until the lights blink. This shouldn’t take more than around 10 seconds of depressing the button to complete.
Upon successfully connecting and logging in, the Ooma Telo Router may need a few minutes to download software updates. It will automatically reboot and all the lights will be blue once it’s done. The Ooma Telo Router is now ready to use.
Aside from the $5-$10 per month government fees and taxes, Ooma Telo Router doesn’t have any fees for users.

Ooma Telo IP Configuration Updates
Go to the Ooma Telo Router’s welcome screen. Select “ Home Network,” which will be the fourth link in the left panel, to change the LAN IP or configure the router. All devices are linked to an internal IP on the local internet network they’re connected to, and the Home Network link will take you behind that connection.
The page should have fields to insert addresses into home port, DHCP configuration, DMZ, and home network port MAC address. To configure, change the values of the four boxes beside “IP Address.” Leave the netmask value boxes and all others as they’re shown. Finish the changes by selecting the “update” button at the bottom of the page.
Keep in mind that the device configuration changes will not become active until the router is rebooted. Restart may take a few minutes as the router updates all internal software configurations for the new IP address before it reconnects to the internet.
