1. Why 9600?

Because you are using a VOIP service it can from time to time lose connection briefly. The slower the speed the less data can be loss do to network congestion. It also gives the error correcting function of the receiving fax a better chance of filling in any lost data.
9600 is a good choice becasue the industry minimum is 9600. This means you will be able to communicate pretty much any fax thats is still tickin today. Raising the speed will get you a faster transfer but will also increase the chance that you are sending data at a faster rate than the recieving fax can send.

2. How to change the baud rate....

Press Menu/Set, 2, 0, 1.
Press ▲ or ▼ to select Basic or
Normal (or High*).
Press Menu/Set.
Press Stop/Exit.
* High is available for FAX-2910, FAX-2920
and MFC-7225 only.
Note
Basic reduces the modem speed to 9600
bps. Unless interference is a recurring
problem on your phone line, you may
prefer to use it only when needed.
Normal sets the modem speed at
14400 bps.
High sets the modem speed at
33600 bps.

How do I change baud rate on Lexmark X5650 in


Just to set your expectation, MagicJack phone service may work but Lexmark does not recommend the printer to be connected to a digital phone signal (e.g. MagicJack, Vonage, etc.) since there are lots of jitter and packet loss in the transmission signal resulting to fax failures. The Lexmark fax machine will have its optimum performance when connected to an analog signal(regular telephone line). But here's how to configure the printer's baud rate. From the Control Panel, press Settings(wrench icon)> Fax Setup, hit Ok > Dialing and Sending, hit Ok > Max Send Speed, hit Ok > set down the speed to 9600 bps. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

Need to know what bod rate is on my fax


older fax machines used a 9600bps baud rate, meaning a transfer rate of 9600 bits per second. a Bit being an 7th/8th of a byte. The newer machines can transfer at 14400bps, which older machines can not read, as its too fast. thats why they asking the BAUD rate.
