Fax machines need an RJ-11 phone cord and are ANALOG

DSL uses RJ-45 and is DIGITAL.

Don't waste your money on a DSL filter, they won't work reliably.

I have a Canon MP830-All in one. It does everything except send/receive faxes. The line has been checked out. If I connect it to the phone line, it just clicks. I have rebooted and unplugged and...


Your fax machine is not getting a dial-tone.

Plug a regular phone into the wall jack and listen for a dial-tone
Make sure the phone line is hooked into the LINE port of your fax machine.
Unplug the power cord for 10 seconds.
Do you have a DSL phone line?

Cannot receive or send faxes, the telephone line is working ok.I have a hp officejet 6100 series all-in-one


Strange...

Try unplugging the machine for 10 seconds, normally HP's will tell you if the have a bad modem ("checking phone line").

Plug a regular phone into the wall jack and listen for a dial tone also make sure the phone cord is plugged into the LINE port of the fax not the phone icon port.

HISSS on line; no dial-tone; no fax in or out


it sounds like you may not have any dial tone. the hiss [white noise] you are hearing is from the dsl modem.try plugging a regular corded phone into the jack to check for dial tone.if there is none,call your phone company.also try plugging the fax machine into another jack where you know there is dial tone.
good luck

I can't receive and send fax


The splitter the technician is referring to goes on the wall jack. One should have come with the "modem" installation package.
Take a regular telephone cord and plug one end into the splitter and the other into the line jack on the Fax/printer.
When your done you should have two phone cords connected to the splitter - one going to the "modem" and the other to the printer.

 Must have DSL filter attached before fax, not sure how you are saying you have it setup, but phone line should come from wall then to filter then to fax socket marked line, phone should be hooked to socket on fax marked EXT, if you dont have dedicated fax line then fax number will be same as phone no.

 

If you have Adsl then there will be a lead from wall that splits into two, one goes to your modem (ADSL) and the other marke phone or line needs to go to fax socket marked LINE

Fax not sending


It sounds like you have a problem with your phone line. If your machine has a reciever, pick it up or press the hook key. You want to listen to the dial tone. If there is any static in the line it will cause faxc problems. Also you can try disconnecting the fax and plugging in a standard phone into the wall jack. Make a phone call and aee if the line is clear or if there is static. If you do hear static in the line, first try replacing the phone line cord, from the wall to the fax, or phone. If that doesnt help then it is definatly a problem with the line and you must call the phone co. If the line is clear with the standard phone, and static with the fax reciever, or hook mode, then you may have a bad modem board in the fax. Let me know if I can be of further help! John
