Yes. Use a splitter. If fax has fax switch built in then fax calls should go to fax only and not phone. A fax switch can be fitted separately.

 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

How do i send a fax ? mfc-240c and where to insert paper.


To send a fax, you need to have a working phone line plugged into the jack on the left hand side of the printer. If you are faxing one page, place it on the scanner bed (the glass) and close the lid, then press the Fax function button, type in the phone number to fax to, and hit Start.

If you are faxing multiple pages, it is the same process, but instead of placing the paper on the scanner, you would place it in the document feeder on top of the printer, and each page would scan through individually. (Make sure none of the pages are stapled or paperclipped together.)

I have just purchased a printer scanner copier and fax from argos where do i get my fax number from please?


Your fax number is the phone number of the line going into the fax machine.
Or do you want to input the phone number into the machine? In which case I would need to know the make and model number of the machine. But if its just the Fax Number, it is the Phone number of the incomming phone line.
