What you are experiencing is line loss.
What happens when you run a phone line to a fax with several items attaches is you lose varying signal strengths.
Seems like you should be able to say, ahh a phone line is a phone line. But you are losing one of or all of 3 things.
Either you phone line voltage is low, if its not low, your phone line current is low or you are experiencing Decibel loss.
All those have to be correct in order for the machines circuitry to pick up the call.
It's different dialing out, it just flips a relay to the line, just like you do when you lift your receiver.
On receive mode, It is the impulse from the incoming line that has to be correct to turn on the relay. So, not enough voltage, current or ampllitude. no activation of the components in receive mode.
I know it's not easy, or cheap, but when fax is important, a dedicated line is always the way to go.

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
