How does the fax work in this machine?

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
It will be difficult to describe the process in words only, so I've provided a support link below, got pictorial representations also, which will guide briefly on setting the fax capabilities on your Printer. I've also provided the download link for the User Manual as that will have a more detailed description. Even though if you aren't able to set it up you can ask me, or can also contact Dell support directly here.
I hope you will definitely come up with some solution.
If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating will be esteemed.
Concerned, Nooh

Dell printer A940 fax trouble

Unless you have 'VOIP' telephone service with Comcast, your FAX will connect through your home's telephone line, not the internet (or modem). You would connect your phone line to the all-in-one printer, then follow Dell's instructions for use. Good luck!

Do you have the user's guide? That usually has all the information you need to install and set up the unit. If you don't, you can always go to the website and download a copy. Then follow the instructions.

What you need to do to set up fax on most printers is use a standard phone cable. ( Cat 3 )

Plug one end intor the printer and the other end into a phone jack.

With this printer you can also fax by using the microsoft software.
