Here's the link to download the Lexmark X7170 User's Guide: http://bit.ly/c8EHEn. Go to Faxing for the instructions on how to go through the settings on the printer. For setting the printer to ring to answer at 0, set it to pickup on the 1st ring. To turn off the distinctive ring, set the ring pattern to any. Hope this helps.
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.
The baud rate is usually determined by the receiving machine. When one fax contacts another, they negotiate their send/receive rates. That's an automatic function and not generally adjustable on modern faxes.
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.
