Question about Brother FAX-2920 Plain Paper Laser
This unit is linked to a DSL line that splits to a router before entering fax -- line has DSL filter between splitter-out and Fax-IN port.
I have exactly the4 same problem on a Samsung fax machine. Works fine in the office on ADSL line/internet and filter. At home, no dial tone, ADSL line/internet and filter. Have tried disablingall other fones on line and plugging direct into line - still does not work but the old grotty fax machine does. Not logical!

It sounds like you may not have any dial tone. the hiss [white noise] you are hearing is from the dsl modem.try plugging a regular corded phone into the jack to check for dial tone.if there is none,call your phone company.also try plugging the fax machine into another jack where you know there is dial tone.

For you to send a fax with the Brother Fax you can try these steps:
1. First make sure that you have a dial tone by lifting the
handset or just by pressing the hook/speakerphone button. Once you have
verified you have a dial tone press the hook button again to return to the main
screen or hang up the handset. LCD should display the date & time
If you don't have a dial tone make sure that
the telephone line cord is connected on the fax machine's Line jack. If you
don't have a dial tone still, connect it to another working outlet. If you
don't have a dial tone still, connect a working telephone on the wall jack to
see if you'll get a dial tone. If you get a dial tone on the regular phone then
problem is either with the line cord or the fax machine.
2. Once you have the date & time on the LCD screen, Load the
document that you want to send on the automatic document feeder which is
directly above the LCD screen.
3. The LCD screen should change from the date/time to "Enter
Fax No. & Press Start" Once you got this screen dial the fax number
and then press Start.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works.
