Question about Actiontec GT704WG Wireless Router (gs583ad3-01)

1 Answer

I purchased this tonight thinking the directions would be great. Well, they were until I got to the part where I had to put the telephone line into the "line" in the back of this unit. Unfortunately, the GT704WG doesn't have a "line" in the back of the unit. It has a "phone" jack but not a "line" as listed in the directions. Needless to say, the internet light remained red. So I unplugged it all and put it back in the box. It's going back to the store tomorrow morning. You'd think a little more care would be given in providing accurate directions to do-it-yourself connections.

It is a router. not a modem. you just dont plug a telephone jack on a router because it will not fit. you have to insert a lan cable from your modem to the router, and the telephone jack is inserted on the modem

How do I put something on my tablet and fax it


I am not sure. Faxes are routinely sent from desktop and laptop computers that are fitted with a fax-modem so the telephone line can be physically connected. Faxes aren't sent through the internet like email but are sent through a direct phone connection to a telephone number.

So far I haven't heard of a tablet computer being fitted with a fax modem so I assume a fax can't be sent directly from a tablet. If a fax is prepared on a tablet I think it would need to be downloaded to a device that has a fax-modem and is connected to the phone.

How do I connect the fax to my home phone line. MFC 240C all in one printer


On the left side of the printer there are two telephone line connections, one is for the telephone line and the other is for the telephone extension. You will need two telephone lines, the type that have that clicker on the end, the line hole goes directly into the wall jack for the telephone and the extension line goes directly into the telephone that you had plugged into the wall. Try that, it works.

Putting up an answering machine in an all in one means having two output at the same time. (1 fax and 2 ans machine). You need to have separate lines for each. A fax line can not accommodate two machines at the same time.

Need to connect ans. machine to single line on a multi line business phone. Help!


Out of box, the AT&T 1738 is designed to operate on a single telephone line. I don't know of any device on the market today that could automatically switch it between multiple telephone lines.

Some options include (in no particular order):

1) Purchasing additional 1738s to cover the other telephone lines.

2) Some cordless telephones on the market are designed to handle 2 telephone lines. Their answering machines will cover both lines. AT&T and Panasonic offer such phones.

3) Check out AT&T's line of NoKSU small office telephone sets. The phones will handle up to 4 telephone lines and 1 model features a built in answering machine. In order for the telephones to function 100% all phones would have to be replaced with the models within the AT&T NoKSU family.

4) If this is strictly a business application, consider purchasing a true business telephone system for the office.

 Must have DSL filter attached before fax, not sure how you are saying you have it setup, but phone line should come from wall then to filter then to fax socket marked line, phone should be hooked to socket on fax marked EXT, if you dont have dedicated fax line then fax number will be same as phone no.

 

If you have Adsl then there will be a lead from wall that splits into two, one goes to your modem (ADSL) and the other marke phone or line needs to go to fax socket marked LINE

Telephone recording


Yeah, um connect it to a phone in a room that is normally isolated from traffic. Not an ideal solution but as it is a machine and has only an external mic (it doesn't have an internal mic does it?) this is the only solution really, remove all noise except phone conversations.
