No, there are devices you can install that determine if an incoming call is a fax or not, and route the fax calls to your fax machine.

No ... you do not need a separate line. When you set your fax up, it will ask you if you have a dedicated line (no) or if you are sharing a line (yes) and how many rings do you want to have before the FAX answers.

I hope this answers your question

My HP 6310 printer / fax is too far away from the phone line. Is there a way to fax wirelessly using this printer?


Only if you have fax software on your computer and scan an image to the computer to fax, otherwise you need a really long phone cable you can buy at Radio Shack or Best Buy.

I'm looking for a fax machine that will share a single phone line, so that incoming calls are routed to the phone and incoming faxes are routed to the fax machine. Is this a built in feature?


I don't really know of a fax machine that will do this automaticly. But you have hope at electronics stores or computer stores they sell a spiltter just for this use. All you do to hook it up is there is one spot to plug in the incoming phone line, then at the other end or side depending on type you buy. You'll have one output to fax and one to your telephone. You can fax or receive faxes and make calls. The splitter seperates the uincoming calls as to faxs or calls and sends them to the correct output.

What do I buy to use 2line phone and separate fax?


You can buy a 2 line phone, but to use the fax/dsl line for voice, you will also need a line sharing device.

"The stick" is a good brand....

All it does is recognize if an incoming call is a fax or a voice call. If fax it would go to a fax port on the stick. If voice, it comes out the voice port which you can call on.

The same rules apply to this line....if something is using it, the next call will get busy......But now you could have the phone company "Hunt" your line 1 to line 2 (fax/dsl) if line 1 is busy.......hence...2 incoming lines....

Will not send faxes


Make sure the phone line is plugged into the LINE jack on the fax, NOT THE PHONE JACK. The phone jack is to add a telephone to the fax. If it is connected properly, try calling your fax from a cell phone and see if it answers. If the fax answers, hang up and press the HOOK button on your fax and use the fax keypad to call your cell. If the cell rings, answer the call and listen for the fax machine tones. If you hear the fax on the cell, you may have to change your machines TRANSMIT or DIALING settings.

Set up


Make sure ECM is turned on. Do not turn on Junk Fax because you will most likely block other faxes.
If you really want the fax machine to work properly, you should connect it to a dedicated line.
You will be disappointed with performance if you try sharing it with other items on the same line.
Reasons, your fax line will be busy when your other functions are being used, and obviously you will miss faxes.
If you are taking a call or message when fax comes in, if the machine is made to give faxes first priority, you will be disconnetcted.
Also, which one do you want to set to pick up first?
The fax machine answers on a certain ammount of rings and so does Voice mail. Which has priority to you. DO you want to miss faxes for messages, or messages for faxes.
Set up vioce mail for 3 rings and fax for 4, then you miss the fax. Reverse it and you miss the message.
Just telling you, I have people call all the time for issues with faxes on the same lines with other items, Answering machines, credit card billers, other phones, etc etc etc.
Good luck. But putting multiple items on the same phone line is setting you up for disappointing performance. And it will not be the problem of the fax machine, It is designed to do what it is supposed to.
Just telling you the truth up front. If your faxes and messages are both important to you. You need a dedicated line for the fax.
