We use this modem for sending high volumes of faxes via a 3rd party automated software process and get intermittent hangs. Is this Fax modem a reliable option, could it be the cause ?Any ideas on what else may be causing this ? ThanksSteve

Re: Intermittent hangs with high fax volumes
Normally it would be as simple as queing and sending faxes but there are times when the problem is the line to the internet. If that goes very slow at some point during the send there is a chance that the modem will hang. Check if you are able to get on the internet with no problems for about an hour. How long do you notice the faxes going before it hangs. Also which actually hangs the third party software or the modem itself. You can test the internet by downloading a file see if it hangs up or becomes very very slow.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.

Please be sure that you have the fax line in the correct jack on the back. Some of the HP modems will actually send a fax if you plug the telephone cord from the wall into jack that is supposed to have a telephonep plugged into it. On the back of the 1522 there are two phone jacks, the upper one is where the cord from the wall plugs in. Also ensure that if you have DSL service that you have a filter in the line for the modem.
You probably need to hook up to a landline telephone line, too. Or, you can use an "e-fax" service that lets you send faxes via internet. Basically, they would send your fax as middleman to the recipient. Windows Vista except Business version) does not have inherent fax support like Windows XP and Windows 7 Professional. And programs such as WinFax did not upgrade to Vista and 7. But, your fax modem should have come with some faxing software.
You put in modem card and then run telephone line to back. You can usually run a line to a telephone from the 2nd connection on the back with the telephone symbol below it.

Well Yes, if you have a Modem, You can connect a Modem & then one can get software that you can use as a Fax machine. Also I believe there is a Built In Fax software too. However I recommend a third party setup. There are lots of really good FREEWARE Fax programs. Ensure they work with Win 7.
