Power cord
RJ-11 telephone cable coming from a splitter or the extn. line of your landline phone.
Ethernet cable coming from your Desktop/Laptop connecting RJ-45 port
Most standard ADSL modems have four/five lights in the front :
Power light to indicate electric power to the modem.
ADSL light indicates the status of ADSL sync. When the modem is synchronized with the ADSL line card at the other end of the circuit/loop, the DSL light will be steady green.

Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line.
It needs an ADSL modem, a telephone line, and filters for all the phones in the house. Your existing telephone line must be enabled by your Telco to handle ADSL traffic. You can go on the internet and use your phone line.

How I can receive fax through computer with HP1312?


Hi a barati75

A fax transmission is an analogue communication that was possible on a computer with the old technology of Dial up Modems, which accessed the internet by dialling like a landline telephone. The Broadband Modems (or Modem/Routers) in widespread use today have an 'always on' internet connection and, therefore, no dialling is involved in internet access using them.

You can send a fax by dialling out on the All-in-one printer's telephone number pad. Receiving a fax automatically requires you to have the All-in-one printer's Transmission/Reception Settings set to 'Automatic'.

This fax setup requires the printer's fax cable to plugged directly into an empty Telephone Line Socket on the ADSL filter that plugs into your Telephone Wall Socket and has inputs for your Modem (or Modem/Router) and a Telephone line. If, as is common, your ADSL Filter only has a single Telephone Line Socket and you also require a telephone to be plugged into the same socket as well as the Fax Machine component of your printer, then a Telephone Line Socket Doubler must first be plugged into the Telephone Line Socket of the ADSL Filter which then receives the Fax Line into one socket and the Telephone Line into the other. Please note that every Telephone Socket in the building sharing the same circuit/telephone number must also have an ADSL filter between it and any telephonic device (Telephone/Fax Machine/Answering Machine/Stock Control linked EPOS (Electronic Point of Sale) System/Card Payment Processing Machine, etc.), in order to enable both Computer Internet Data and Telecommunications Data to share the same line without conflict.

Your question asks whether a fax can be received "through" the computer. The above description enables your printer to send and receive faxes 'independently' of the computer while simultaneously providing the computer with printing, scanning and copying functions. For faxes to be sent and received via the computer, software is required. The simplest and most efficient of which is Efax (Electronic Fax (available from www.efax.com) and other similar software available from a variety of suppliers. This software enables the user to send any document or image stored on the computer by fax (without first having to print it) and to receive faxes, at any time, in the form of attachments to e-mails that the software opens, usually as a non-editable PDF or other similar secure Document Format. Faxing a physical document via Efax requires the user to scan the document and save it on the computer first, before sending it.

A combination of a Standalone Fax function setup using ADSL Filters and Socket Doublers + Efax gives the user optimum flexibility in sending and receiving faxes.

I hope this helps.

How can I tell whether my R6100 router is working? I am told the line is fine but I cannot connect to internet My ISP is suggesting that it must be the splitter which I do not have or the router. The lights are green but v little other activity. Tried turning on and off no change when settles down. Is there a diagnostic check I can run from my PC? Jonathan


Your router has several light on the front that indicate what the current status of your connection is. Make sure to check your manual to see what your router is trying to tell you.
As far as the splitter or router issues are concerned: you should use a splitter on an ADSL connection. You won't really need one if you don't have a telephone line, but it's best to use one. Also, don't forget you can also try to hook up your router to a friend's connection and see if you're getting issues with that router on a different line as well.
If you're still clueless after this, don't forget that most ISP's won't charge you if there does happen to be a problem with your telephone line. Make sure you check your ISP's policy regarding that.
