What does it mean when my Muratec Fax Machine says DHCP Server Did Not Respond and it will not send or receive documents?

DHCP is the way systems on a network get an address from the network. In a home environment, that's usually done by the router. Unless your fax machine is attempting to send faxes via the internet (rare), that isn't why your machine can't send or receive a fax. If you're talking about sending a fax from your computer, then not having an address is indeed the reason you can't send a fax from your computer.
You will need to see why your router isn't giving the fax machine an ip address. Is it connected to the router? Wireless? Wired?

I want to forward my faxes from my Panasonic machine to another # temporarily.. is this possible and how?

Fax forwarding You might want to set up fax forwarding if you are going on a trip, but still want to receive your faxes while you are away. There are three fax forwarding settings:
  • Off (default)
  • Forward-When your All-In-One receives a fax, it holds it in memory and then sends it to the fax number that you designate.
  • Print and Forward-Your All-In-One forwards the fax to the designated fax number and prints the fax.
To set up fax forwarding:
  1. On the control panel, press Fax.
  2. Press Options until Fax Forward appears, and then press Select.
  3. Use the arrow buttons to scroll to the option that you prefer (Fax Forward or Print and Forward) appears, and then press Select.
  4. Enter the number that you want to forward the fax to, and then press Select.

Fwd now appears on the bottom left corner of the display.

I would like to know if it is possible to print from my computer to the brother intelifax 2820? Is it possible to use this machine as the printer? Do I need to down load a program to do this.

Yes; the machine has printer capabilities. It comes equipped with a USB port (cord may not have come with machine and needs to be purchased). Just connect the machine to your computer via the USB and your computer will search for software to install it as a printer. You may also install it using the software that came with the machine.

I can send fax but not receive

On this machine you can check the menu selection to see how you have set the answer mode. There are different ways you can reviece faxes, to print right away, or store them in memory.
With these types of problems when one area does work, and the menu selections are correct, either the software is not working right especially when it is connected to the computer via USB, or the machine has a hard failiure of the modem circuit board on the fax machine.
If the machine is old and it is connected to the computer, there are software differences with the drivers, XP and Vista. Some drivers are too old for some of these faxes even if the machine still works, the drivers are outdated and the manufacture will not upgrade them.
There are other questions I have reguarding this type of problem.
Good luck.

We can send faxes but we can not receive faxes. The fax machine that sends the fax tell it that our line is busy. Is that a machine problem or a phone line problem?

Problem lies in your Receive Mode setting. If you don't have a dedicated phone line for the fax machine, you need to set it up for either Manual where you answer every call or Fax/Tel whereby the Fax machine determines if the incoming call is a fax or phone call. Instructions per Intellifax 4100 Manual.

Select a Receive Mode
Choose the mode that best suits your needs by pressing the Mode button
repeatedly until the FAX and FAX/TEL lights show the setting you want to use.
You must answer every call yourself.
The Brother machine must be started manually
to receive faxes.
For use with a dedicated fax line.
Every call is answered as a fax.
For receiving fax and voice calls on one line.
The FAX answers every call and receives a fax or
double rings for you to pick up a voice call.
For use with an answering device.
The TAD answers every call and stores voice messages.
Fax messages are printed.

Get communication problems when sending some faxes - when sending faxes to some places it won't transmit but will transmit to other places

The problem can be either a error with your phone service or an incompatablity with your machine and the receivers.

Sometimes the problem is as simple as the receiver's machine being set to receive on more rings than your's before it goes into redial.

Blank page prints in between a fax received

if its coming from a fax server this cannot be stopped. You should upgrade to a newer better machine that is up to industry standard. Fax servers are basically faxing you from a computer. This is a different process than faxing from an actual fax machine and the page size can be conflicted. Only high end newer machines can compensate for this.

Fax machines are ANALOG devices and are designed to have their own dedicated phone line. They will not work reliably on DIGITAL phone lines.

Sending faxes

You can hook a fax to any standard phone line. That is what they are designed for. The only issue is if you share the fax with your telephone, you will need to set the machine up to receive the fax before you answer the phone.
