Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
I used to be able to fax directly from my computer because the fax and dial-up were connected through the landline, not simultaneously, but easily whenever I needed to. That was before I had Vista and DSL.
Now I can't do this even though my computer has a modem in addition to whatever network connection doo-dah it has for DSL. HP support (and various others) have told me that I would have to disconnect the DSL and set up the computer modem to be able to use the built in fax through the phone line because of Vista -- and then, of course, reconfigure to go back to the DSL. Way too tedious.
I am aware of net based faxing. I'm NOT interested in 30 day ''free'' trials and fees that kick in thereafter.
I want to be able to use the internal fax without massive and temporary un-do's re-do's to accomplish this since my computer does have an internal fax and I do have a phone line.
I hope this makes sense (It does to me) because some folks couldn't seem to understand it. I just want the fee free and easy level of functionality of the internal faxing I had before.
Can this be done????
My computer is a HP Pavillion a6330f desktop with Vista Home Premium, 3GB memory. The "What product is this about" box does not recognize this as a "valid" product. It is. I'm looking at the label right now. So I am posting this as: HP Pavilion dv9000z 17" Notebook Laptop PC since no Pavillion desktops are listed.
I'm afraid I got bad news for you. The fax line and voice line are using the same frequency so you should be able to fax directly from your pc fax modem when using Dial up connection but in DSL the data and voice are using different frequency. So you wont be able to fax using DSL unless u\you use a separate fax machine.
Digital subscriber line (DSL) uses digital technology to bring high-bandwidth information over ordinary copper telephone wires. Digital data is transmitted to the computer directly as digital data (instead of analog) and this allows the telephone company to use a much wider bandwidth for transmitting the data to its destination. XDSL is a generic reference to the different variations of DSL, such as ADSL, HDSL, and RADSL. DSL services rely on an am radio wave that has a range of 600 KHz to 2.2 GHz. HP all-in-one and fax products are all ITU Group 3 fax devices that operate at about 200 KHz (below the DSL capability) and are not directly compatible with digital signals. However, if specified during the set-up of the DSL line, the signal can be separated so that some of the bandwidth is used to transmit an analog signal (for voice and fax) while the remaining bandwidth is used to transmit digital data. This allows for the use of the telephone or fax, and computer on the same line and at the same time. When inquiring about DSL with the service provider, specify the desire to use the phone line for voice or fax calls while connected through the computer to the Internet. I hope I explained the issue clearly to you.
