Question about Brother MFC-8840D All-In-One Laser Printer
I have read loads of articles about faxing over voip most of which say it cannot be done, I originally tried faxing through a brother all in-one printer/fax scanner machine and had no luck at all.
After giving in to the possibility it might not be possible I decided to see if i could find some software to run on a PC, all i can find is software that uses a modem, so thinking i could plug my pc in, through the ATA (voip device) I tried it and bingo i could send a fax fine over voip, no problems at all, however when dialing in/recieving a fax, the PC seems to answer the call and then nothing, game over... is there anything i can do?
I have set the codec on the ATA device to G.711 as recommended, i've set all the volume features to there highest. But somewhere things are going wrong...
any help would be appreciated

If the wall jack has a dial tone, disconnect the telephone line from the telephone and connect it to the jack on the FAX/MFC labeled LINE. Make sure the line cord is connected from the jack on the FAX/MFC labeled LINE directly to the wall jack. Press the Hook
or Speaker Phone key or pick up the external telephone handset and
listen for a dial tone.If
there is still no dial tone, your machine may require service.

Get a new phone wire. Put a phone on the line and listen for static. Too many phones on one line will cause problems. If the phone line is going thru a surge protector, check the quality of the sound with it and without it, it may be damaged. Keep power wires away from phone wires, they cause static.
