Put those filters on the line with your phones and answering machines and stuff; if you know they're already on correctly, tell your telco they have something configured wrong and to please look into it (though it's possible the filter in your DSL modem is going wacky on you or that the filters got wet; you can tell them the signal strength (e.g. -11dB) info from your DSL router's connection info page.)

Fax is trying to answer my phone


Check the settings of your fax. You have to set it on which ring you wish it to answer. You can't fax without having a hard line phone plugged in. Also, you must have a filter on your fax line if you use DSL.

I have a dell 2400. It periodically shuts down to the flashing light state when my cell phone rings. It's rare and NOT everytime my cell phone rings. But I've noticed that every shutdown has coincided...


Hey

A friend of mine reported this. It is possible the frequency does interfere with your computer. If the phone is close to your computer, move it way.

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.

With broadband connected I can't hear a thing on the phone. We get lots of static, voices are very quiet. I have a phone line splitter on the line.


If you have DSL for your broadband connection, you need a filter on every phone jack. These filters are provided by your DSL provider

Since I've hooked up my internet my phone has gone dead. It is not an outside problem. My phone was fine before I pluged in the dsl. I have disconected the box and tried pluging in just the phone and that...


contact your service provider and ask them to put a filter in your customer service access on your outside phone interface sometimes the dsl will over power the line filters and keep your phone from working try unpluging your dsl and all your phones for 5 min then pluging just 1 phone in and see if you have a dial tone

Lost internet connection. I use BT Voyager 190 ADSL modem on AOL with WIndows Vista. Power and Thernet indicator lights are on solid, but DSL and Internet indicators are off.


Sounds like there is a issue with your phone line. The DSL indicator is the phone line. Check to see if you have a dial tone or if a message is on the phone you haven't listen too, if you have message service. Try unplugging all phone connections as and replug them in again. You also might need a filter for your DSL to phone line. Also if you have an alarm that is monitoring your system, you need to by pass alarm and use a filter.

Connecting FAX on HP OfficeJet Pro L7680


If you don't see a phone jack on the back of the computer, it means that you do not have a dial-up modem in the unit.
A DSL line is installed with the cable modem supplied by the DSL company, ie: Bellsouth, AT&T. It connects to your computer via the network port.
The DSL provider supplies the modem and the filters that you need to install on your phone outlets.

Hope this helps.

If it does, please rate it.
If not, I can give you further assistance.

Lexmark x6150 unalbe to fax phone line is active using dsl


Hey Tony - Did you recently hook this up to the DSL for the first time? This unit is supposedly not able to work with a DSL line.

The fax modem in your AIO is an analog device and cannot be used on an ISDN, DSL, or PBX digital phone service. However, you can connect certain devices to your AIO that let you use the fax function in addition to these digital phone services.

To connect without an unsupported line:
Connect an active telephone cable from the AIO to the telephone wall jack.

To connect with an unsupported line:
If you use an ISDN phone service, you can connect to an analog telephone port (an R-interface port) on an ISDN terminal adapter.
For more help and to request an R-interface port, contact the ISDN provider.
If you use a DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) phone service, you can connect to a DSL filter or router that will allow for some analog (rather than digital) use.
If you use a PBX phone service, you can install an analog phone line for a fax machine.

If this was working on the DSL let me know. I don't know the location but obviously a separate phone jack is the easiest. Let me know. If this helps you fix it you can rate this as fixed. If you are just going to rate this as helpful I'd rather you please not rate it and just add a comment and say thanks for the info.
If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to assist you further. Thanks.
