Want receive a fax


To receive a fax, first check to see if your telephone line has the capacity to send and receive faxes, a "conventional modem" sometimes is necessary, that may have changed with VOIP . Make sure to configure printer for faxing and that the Fax icon appears in the Printer/Fax window.. Follow all the basic set up steps to configure Fax, making sure all options are set correctly to enable where required. You might call your local phone company and ask them what you need to hook up a fax capable printer...or ask the manufacturer for the specifics of configuration for faxing.

Im trying hook up a wireless router and it ask what kind of conection I have static ip ect... How do I know what I have? Im using DSL.


Most residential subscriber services use dynamic IP addressing. Dynamic IP addressing is automatic from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Linksys home based products such as the one you have should be setup up for this configuration out of the box by default, and require no adjustments to the IP configuration of the wireless router.

You should power down the DSL modem and Linksys, then connect them, then reapply power. This will clear the DSL modem if it was connected to another device such as a PC. This is important as most cable and DSL modems use something called MAC address binding that will only allow one device to connect to it directly at a time.

Whenever some tries to call me while using my DSL,


It sounds as if your PC's fax/modem card is set to automatically receive faxes, so the PC answers the phone whenever it's on. To fix this, you need to set your fax modem to receive manually (or disabled if you don't use it to receive faxes). Open the Printer and Faxes (Windows XP) and double click the fax icon. If this is the first time you've opened it, you'll have to go through the fax configuration wizard, if not, you'll be presented the Fax Console. Click on Tools, Configure Fax. On the second page of the configuration wizard, you'll be presented with the select fax device. This is the page where you select to enable fax sending and receiving. Turn off the Enable Receive check box if you never want to receive faxes. Leave it on, but set to manual if you want to be able to manually receive faxes (every time your phone rings, you'll have a notification in the system tray asking if you want to receive a fax).

Fax rings but machine doesn't answer


First check the setup/configuration and make sure the Fax is set to answer on 1 or 5 rings. If the line is dedicated to fax then it can be set to answer after the first ring. Fax machine works off a modem that listens for the ring and handshake tones. If the machine has been hit with a lightening spike then the hearing portion may be dead.
Translation: Your fax machine is Deaf and can not hear the ring.
It will never answer and do the fax handshake required.
If it is a new machine and still under warranty. Take it back as soon as you can.

If this is a fax machine installed at work.
Be careful, some phone systems used in the corporate buildings have too high a voltage and will fry the modem/fax card.

If this is a home machine with DSL.
Make sure the DSL line filter is applied correctly.
It will be clearly marked Phone or DSL line. Do NOT connect the phone/fax line into the DSL line connection.

Hope this helps!
Good luck!

I give up. I have winfax software on this machine, but I am new at the job. Please can you help me link my fax to the winfax software? I am not able to send faxes as I think you actually have to be...


You need to setup a fax modem to be able to send and receive faxes with WinFax.

In WinFax, click on Tools, Setup.
Click on Modems & Communications Devices.
Here you can configure your fax device.

You need a fax modem, a DSL modem or a cable modem is not a fax modem.

I suggest you read this:

I can;t received faxes on my computer


Are you using DSL connection or Dial-up?
What OS are you using?

The fax line and voice line are using the same frequency so you should be able to fax directly from your pc fax modem when using Dial up connection but in DSL the data and voice are using different frequency. So in normal situations you wont be able to fax using DSL modem unless you use a separate fax machine.

However, if specified during the set-up of the DSL line, the signal can be separated so that some of the bandwidth is used to transmit an analog signal (for voice and fax) while the remaining bandwidth is used to transmit digital data. This allows for the use of the telephone or fax, and computer on the same line and at the same time. When inquiring about DSL with the service provider, specify the desire to use the phone line for voice or fax calls while connected through the computer to the Internet.

Reference the following setup options for using a DSL line with HP all-in-one or fax products.

Slow Fax Transmissions with USR V92 External fax modem


Its possible you've set your faxes to send in FINE resolution (200 dpi), I am not sure about MS Fax, but in WinFax you can select both Standard Resolution and Fine resolution as the default for sending faxes.

The best solution is not to need a fax/modem. Send and receive faxes via internet.

Actually, you cannot send faxes through a DSL modem. You have to use a phone line or send it through the internet (not directly through the modem), at least from what I know...
