Using 5 port stealth box to share phone line between pc and fax

I connected a 5 port stealth box between a fax and pc internal modem. The fax is plugged into one side of a splitter on the main line and the stealth box on the other 8 conductor side. if a ,2,2,2 in the modem dial string is used to go to the pc it works fine. if a fax calls in, the line is busy to the incoming call. i called the fax line from my cell phone and it actually went to the fax and the fax tried to receive. Why will my cell get directed to the fax, but not another fax machine? Please help.

It does not produce a dialing tone and it doesn't fax nor recieve


Here are some things to check:
1. Is the unit attached to a direct line (not one that goes through a local PBX)? Many fax machines have problems with internal connections.

2. Is the phone line connected to the proper port? The port for the external phone normally will have a picture of a handset. The other port is used to connect to the phone outlet.

3. Try a new phone cable between the fax and the phone outlet.

My printer will not fax says not connected to network when it is.


faxing requires some type of Phone connection in most instances, network faxing is another set of drivers that need to run on your PC, the same as phone line faxing that utilizes your modem (as long as the modem is fax capable) the issue you have is the way it is set up. first off you have to have the communications between the printer and the computer running properly. If you do not have a router with a wifi connection and the printer is connecting directly to the computer wirelessly, you need to make sure it is set for peer to peer networking, if you have a true network using a router and wifi (more than one computer can connect to it, you need to make sure you are set for that. Remember, you are not faxing from the printer if it is not connected to a phone line, you are faxing from your computer. and you need to make sure you are running the correct type of fax software, for network faxing or dial up (phone line) faxing.

BUSY SIGNAL UNABLE TO RECIEVE FAX


You should unplug your fax machine from the phone wire and call your fax number to see if it is still busy. If it is then you have some other device sharing the line that is holding the line busy or a short in a wire. Remove all other devices (computer modem, credit card machine, cable/satellite box, alarm system etc) and check again. If it is still busy you may have to call your phone company to have them diagnose the problem. If the line is cleared start adding each device back to the line and check between each to see if the line busy's up. If it does it may be the device or the wire (the wire may be damaged and shorting the line).

I have no dial tone on my fax machine and i cant send or receive faxes


Remove the phone line from the back of the fax and connect a standard phone (not a business PABX or PAX system phone) to the line. Ensure dialtone is available. (Make sure in doing this that you are also testing the cable from the phone socket to the fax). If no dialtone, replace cable or fix line.

Check that the line is connected to the 'line' port on the fax, not the 'phone' port.

If still no dial tone, it may be modem fault (in the fax). Seek specialist attention.

Fax is printing other fax machine's outbond faxes


Yikes!! Get your phone company involved. Remember that a fax machine uses a normal home style phone line. Something is seriously messy with the phone lines in the building

Cox comunications installed new modem and now the fax will not recieve or send


Make sure phone line is plugged into the right port. If you have two phone line ports on your fax machine, one is going to be labeled "line" and the other "ext" or "phone". You want the phone line connected to the line jack. This is assuming that you are not on Voice Over IP phone with the change from Cox. If you are, you may need to contact them to see how to connect your fax with your new configuration.

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
