How to make it send faxes to pc

The user's guide says this printer will send the faxes to the pc, but it doesn't tell you how to make it do that. It says "For details, see Using Brother PC_FAX software on page 5-6 in Software User's Guide on the CD-ROM." Well, I can't find it on the CD-ROM and I'm stuck. Anybody have instructions on how to do this? I want to make it send them to a folder in my pc. Thanks!

All In one Dell printer 926 can't get it to send a fax. There's no place for a phone line to be hooked into it and it tells me there's no phone line but I have dsl and the phone line for home phone and dsl...

You can find information on your product here:

I recommend you check to make sure you have the most current drivers for your PC modem and that you also download the User Guide for your printer for the guidance on using your printer to send and receive faxes.

You need to setup your system to use the modem in your PC.

Here is how your system should be setup:

Note that you will need a DSL filter on the phone line to your computer.

I cannot get my fax to work, how do I send and receive faxes ,I am not sure how to connect the phone lines, which line goes where? bewildered not so much a computer whiz

Do you have the user's guide? That usually has all the information you need to install and set up the unit. If you don't, you can always go to the website and download a copy. Then follow the instructions.
