There's no such thing as wireless faxing, you need to connect the phone cable/line at the back of the printer where there is a slot there that says "line1" . faxes uses analog phone lines so you have to had a phone line. on dsl it may or may not work coz as ive said faxes uses analog lines which has low frequency while dsl has high frequency

How do I fax using a cell phone and bluetooth?


Hi Gail

It's a little challenging as you need to configure a few things between your phone and the fax. These steps are basically one of doing it, but, I would resort to using the old fashion way! :-)

How to Fax Wirelessly Wireless faxing is easier today than it has ever been before. Whether you're faxing wirelessly from a tablet, smartphone, or computer, wireless faxing is pretty much as easy as sending an email.
There are three broad ways to wirelessly send a fax:
  • Use your cellular network
  • Use Wi-Fi
  • Wirelessly connect to a fax machine via Bluetooth or your wireless network
We're going to break down each of these faxing options down below and explain everything you need to know about wireless faxing.
Wirelessly Faxing Over your Cellular Wireless If you're trying to fax from your smartphone or tablet, then you're likely going to be faxing over a cellular connection.
There's only one way to fax over a cellular connection: online faxing.
Online faxing services act as a virtual fax machine. You communicate with this fax machine over the internet. That fax machine receives emails for you and sends them to your inbox. Then, you email the fax machine whenever you want to send a fax to a recipient.
With online faxing, there's really no restriction to the number of wireless devices you can use. As long as your device has an internet connection and the ability to send an email, you'll have no trouble wirelessly faxing over your cellular wireless network.
Aside from online faxing, there are no other ways to wirelessly fax over your cellular wireless network. You can't turn your mobile device into a modem. There's also no smartphone software that transforms your mobile device into a fax machine hardware platform.
Put simply, you can't receive faxes over the same number as your cell phone. It's impossible.
Using Wireless Internet (Wi-Fi) to Send a Fax Using wireless internet (Wi-Fi) to send a fax is as straightforward as sending it over a cellular connection.
The best option is to use online faxing. Online faxing lets you send a fax over Wi-Fi as easy as sending an email.
You sign up for an computer fax provider, then send an email just as you would normally send an email. Here's a quick step by step guide:
Step 1) Pick an online fax provider and sign up
Step 2) Compose a new email over Wi-Fi as you normally would send an email
Step 3) In the recipient section, type the fax number of your recipient followed by the online address of your fax provider, like by typing 1234567@nextiva.com.
Step 4) Add a cover letter to your fax by typing something into the body of the email
Step 5) Click "Send" after you've verified all of the information is complete.
That's it! You've just sent a fax over Wi-Fi using an electronic faxing service. If you're only sending a small number of faxes, then you might not even have to pay for faxing - many providers offer free trials or let you send a small number of faxes for free.
Alternatively, if you don't want to use online faxing, then you may be able to connect to your wireless fax machine over your Wi-Fi network (provided you're both connected to the same home or office network).
Some multi-purpose printers (with scan, copy, fax, and print capabilities) will have wireless connectivity.
Both fax machines and multi-purpose printers will also sometimes have Bluetooth functionality, which means you can connect to those devices outside of your wireless network.
Use a Fax Machine with A Wireless or Cellular Connection Some fax machines can connect to your home's wireless network over Wi-Fi, or they can connect to your computer over Bluetooth.
However, some fax machines go beyond this and connect to a cellular network on their own. These wireless fax machines are physical fax machines that have a dedicated cell phone connection.
These machines also go by names like GSM fax machines or CDMA fax machines, depending on the type of network they use.
If you use a wireless fax machine like this, then your fax machine will have a separate fax number and cellular service account. Faxes are sent and received over the cellular network just as they would be received using a traditional fax machine.
This type of wireless fax machine is ideal for situations where you don't have a phone line but have good cell service. These fax machines require a strong cellular connection, as any static or loss of quality on the connection may prevent the fax from being accurately transmitted.
These are all the ways to send and receive a fax wirelessly!

Sorry I was wrong about the number on the computer but the question is the same how come I can't print or fax ?


Do you receive any type of error message? It seems for some reason your wireless printer is not communicating with the PC/laptop. Also, printing and faxing each require different forms of communication. In printing, you PC is just telling the printer to print what is on the screen; faxing requires the use of a phone line that needs to be set-up properly. Although the wireless setup btw the printer and PC must be working first.

Try uninstalling and reinstalling the software with the printer not plugged into the PC until the software is installed. Also, reread your manual carefully for insights about your issue.

I can't get my HP potosmart C6180 ALL IN ONE PRINTER TO SCAN/COPY OR FAX WITHOUT GETTING A SCANNER FAILURE MESSAGE SAYING UNABLE TO SCAN,COPY OR SEND A FAX


Solved! I now can scan wirelessly throughout my network. I downloaded the drivers for a friends newer HP all-in-one scanner and I can scan. Look for the driver for the 309a series of printers and install it. Complete the install and set up your existing printer. You can now scan, print, fax wirelessly. It includes updated HP apps for these functions that work with OS 10.5. I didn't upgrade to the HP 1.1 drivers through Apple. The file name is: PS_AIO_05_C309a_Net_Full_Mac_WW_102.dmg

Hello i keep faxing and it says gthat it is not


Check the phone number of the fax maching you are trying to send to.
Call the fax number with your phone (not fax machine) and confirm that a fax tone sequence is trying to sync.... If you get a "Hello" .. then you have a wrong fax number...

LexmarLk X4850 fax wireless set-up


Printing: since Lexmark say you can either connect wirelessly or wired and not both, you must either connect your daughter's machine to the hub by wire or yourself to the printer wirelessly.

Fax: this will need a phone line.

I want my printer to print wirelessly


First you have to make sure that the printer has a wireless card. If the device does not you must purchase and have it installed. Also your computer needs to be hooked to a wireless router or have a wireless card installed so that the printer and computer can both be seen and communicate. Some printers, depending on age, can not be upgraded to be wireless.

Please Help


How is the printer connected through your pc? Is it wireless, wired network or USB cable? If it's wireless, check if the printer is connected to the network. Ping the ip address. If replies, check the printer ip on printers and faxes and make sure it matches the ip on the printer itself.
