About Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection (DRPD)
"Distinctive Ring" is a service provided by some telephone service providers. Two phone numbers are assigned to one phone line so that you will hear different ring patterns for incoming phone calls than for incoming faxes. If you subscribe to this service, follow the instructions below to program your All-In-One to use it.
On the X125:
Press Setup once, then press Menu nine (9) times until DRPD appears on the display.
On the X63:

  1. Press Setup once, then press Menu eight (8) times until DRPD appears on the display.
  2. Press Options until you see Learn, and then press Start/Yes.
  3. Dial the phone number that you want to use as a fax number. (Do this from a different phone line, not from the line the fax will be installed on.)
  4. Press Setup.
  5. Press Menu until you see Fax Receive Mode on the display.
  6. Press Options until you see DRPD, and then press Start/Yes. The All-In-One detects the ring pattern and answers all incoming faxes on the second ring.

On the Lexmark X3430 all-in-one FAX... where is the connections for the phone cords to plug into modem and one to plug into computer?

It is entirely possible you were given the wrong instructions for your printer (or someone wrote the instructions without seeing the actual machine). Why not contact Lexmark and ask for a logical explanation?

Can i send a fax with my lexmark X2690?

No, it is not fax capable. If there is not a regular telephone line jack on the printer it cannot dial out to send a fax.

I have high speed through my cable co. when i try to fax it says it can't find the modem

Correct. Your printer does not have the capability to send a FAX.
Is there a telephone-cable between your printer and the telephone-jack in the wall of your home?
Also, your computer has no add-in FAX modem, or your computer does have a FAX modem that does not have the correct device-drivers installed.

Sending a fax by DSL requires one of two methods: 1. You obtain a DSL line filter suitable for connecting a standard voice telephone to the DSL line, then connect an analog fax modem to the line through the line filter. 2. You hire an Internet E-faxing service. See · · · Tim
