On page 33 of the Getting Started Guide it states that: If you are using all of the device functionality, see the "Fax" chapter in the electronic user guide that is provided on the device CD (HP Color LaserJet 2830/2840 all-in-one only), and then go to step 27 (Network connection) or step 28 (Installing software) in this getting started guide.
Do I really need this CD electronic users guide?? I can send faxes, but not receive them. I've made sure that the answer mode is not set to Manual, the phone line is working, the rings to answer feature is set. I'm frustrated as to where to go from here.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Let me know if this doesn't solve your problem, and include further detail to the problem if available.
see manual (can be download from homepage www.brother.com). If you are a victim of spam faxes you better buy a new mfc with a pc-fax-incoming-transmission function (e.g. mfc 440cn etc.) This will give you the opportunity to have a look at the faxes on the screen first and then to decide which one should be printed.
