Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

1 Answer

Want to be able to fax from computer even though DSL connected

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.
Ahh... computers.
Than ks

    FixYa's automatic product titling system seems to have misdirected the intent of my question!  My desktop computer, HP Pavillion a6330f, was not considered a "valid" product, so I chose from the options available all of which seemed to be notebooks.


    Saifalikhan made suggestions appropriate to finding info on laptops, none of which was appropriate to my concern, being able to fax seamlessly from my desktop even though DSL is connected.

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.

    Reference the following setup options for using a DSL line with HP all-in-one or fax products.



    Setup Option 1
    The HP all-in-one or fax product can be connected to a telephone wall jack with an inline filter installed between. Use this option if the DSL router is not in the same wall jack as the fax. If the fax is connected without the filter, there will be interference with the faxing capability.


    1- Telephone wall jack
    2- Inline filter
    3- HP all-in-one or fax product



    Setup Option 2
    If the HP all-in-one or fax product is connected to the same telephone wall jack as the PC, the fax and PC connections will need to be split with a router. To use this setup, the router must have a built-in DSL filter (such as Cisco 675 router) to ensure that the DSL signal is filtered from the fax connection.


    1- Telephone wall jack
    2- DSL router with built-in filter
    3- PC
    4- HP all-in-one or fax product



    Setup Option 3
    If the HP all-in-one or fax product is connected to the same telephone wall jack as the PC, the fax and PC connections will need to be split with a router. If the router does not have a built-in DSL filter (such as a Cisco 678 router), an inline filter will need to be installed between the fax and the router to ensure that the DSL signal is filtered from the printer connection.


    1- Telephone wall jack
    2- DSL router (without a built-in filter)
    3- PC
    4- Inline filter
    5- HP all-in-one or fax product.



    Setup Option 4

    If the HP all-in-one or fax product is connected to the same telephone wall jack as the PC with a built-in filter, the fax and PC connections will not need to be split with a filter or router. The fax can be connected directly to the PC.


    1- Telephone wall jack
    2- PC with built-in filter
    3- HP all-in-one or fax product
    4- Telephone or answering machine



    Setup Option 5
    If the HP all-in-one or fax product is connected to the same telephone wall jack as a PC without a built-in filter, the fax and the PC connections will need to be split with a filter.


    1- Telephone wall jack
    2- PC (without built-in filter)
    3- Inline filter
    4- HP all-in-one or fax product
    5- Telephone or answering machine



    Setup Option 6
    The HP all-in-one or fax product can also be connected to the same telephone wall jack as a PC via a splitter.


    1- Telephone wall jack and splitter
    2- Inline filter
    3- HP all-in-one or fax product
    4- Telephone or answering machine
    5- DSL Router
    6- PC

I am trying to use the fax facility on my epson600fw.my isp is aol .Problem no dial tone. What connections are necessary............via printer,modem & computer ?


Typically, a fax machine is connected directly to a telephone wall jack with a known working connection. Try plugging the fax machine directly into a wall jack first and pick up the handset on the fax machine if it has one. You should get a dial tone. Then try to fax something to someone you know.

The machine can also usually be routed through the modem in a computer by connecting the "line" cord on the modem to the wall jack and plugging the fax machine into the the "phone" jack on the modem. You may need to install the software that came with the fax machine to get this to work.

If you have no dial tone, check the wall jack with a known to be working single line phone. If there is a dial tone, it's something to do with fax machine, the computer modem or the connections.

Some fax machines can take advantage of internet faxing through a cable modem or DSL connection. Check your manual for the options available.

I lost my manual and would like help in connecting to phone jack


Each phone or dial-up modem or fax machine needs a DSL filter attached to the phone line/socket then each phone or dial-up or fax machine is then plugged into this filter.
The DSL modem does not require a filter.
If your fax is part of the computer's modem then a filter is also required on the line-in on the modem.
The instructions for sending & receiving depends upon your system/dial-up modem (the make & model, is it stand alone or a modem adapter on the expansion slot or built-in on the motherboard) and the software you are using. Cannot help you without these details.

Lexmark x2470. Fax solutions not working after going high speed


Please check that the Phone line for faxing is connected to a seperate NON FILTERED phone line. Not to the dsl line. You can use a line splitter for this. Also the dial up modem may need to remain in your computer for the fax software to dial out. Hope this helps.

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
