Re: 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.

1.Unplug all phone, fax and satellite TV cables from the wall phone jacks.
2.Plug the double DSL filter into the wall phone jack where the 2701HG-B will be located.
3.Plug the phone wire (for phone, fax, etc.) into the jack on the filter labeled "Phone."
4.Plug the gray phone cable into the other jack on the filter labeled "DSL."
5.Add the single DSL filters on all remaining phone jacks in the same manner, plugging the device phone cables into the filter. The single filters only have one jack.
6.Plug the power adapter into the power port on the back of the 2710HG-B router and then plug the other end into a power outlet. This will cause the power light on the front of the router to turn green.
7.Plug the free end of the gray phone cable into the port on the back of the router labeled "Phone Line."
8.Plug one end of the yellow Ethernet cable into one of the four ports on the back of the router labeled "Ethernet."
9.Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into your computer's Ethernet port. The Ethernet light on the router should now be green.
10.Plug the power adapter into the back of the 2701HG-B and the wall power outlet.
11.Plug the gray phone cable into the jack on the back of the router labeled "Phone Line."
12.Open the Network and Sharing Center on your computer by right-clicking the Internet connection icon in your taskbar.
13.Click "Set up a new connection or network" and follow the instructions provided by the wizard to set up the wireless connection on your computer.
14.Enter the SSID and WEP key when prompted. The SSID is "2WIRE" followed by the last three digits of the router's serial number, which is located on the bottom side of your 2701HG-B router. You will also be prompted to enter a WEP encryption key, also found on the bottom side of the router. The WEP key is the 10 digit number that appears in brackets under the first bar code.

Assuming you have SP 3 on 2000, it's possible the USB ports are bad. Try a different USB device ie mouse, flash drive etc to verify whether the USB port is bad. If this is the case, you can either purchase a USB 2.0 card and install it on your PC or run without USB ports.
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.
you need to give more details on how you're trying to send the fax.
keep in mind you don't actually need a printer to send the fax if you're using your computer to send the fax.. that's the reason you need to be more precise when discribing your problem.
in general you need to be familiar with how things are connected.
if your printer is a fax machine too the minimum you need is to have your printer/fax connected to a line (to the telephone wall jack) and to be powered up.
if your printer is only a printer and you're using your computer to send the fax you need to have your modem (the connector in the back of your computer that looks like a telephone line but says not telephone but 'line' connected to the phone line on the wall) connected and have software that allows you send faxes via your computer. (windows xp has that software so you need to make sure is installed (start>control panel>add remove programs>add/remove windows components>fax services should be installed) and if the software is installed you should be able to go to start>accessories>communications>fax>fax console
confirm what is your set up and give more details.
it's not dumb at all. i presume you didn't get a manual with it. give me the model number and i'll find you a start up guide. also most of the connectors will be colour coded. the two small round ones pink and green are ps/2 connectors. that is your mouse and keyboard. if you get them reverse it will just not boot. power connector is fairly obvious. I presume that has a dial up modem and not a network card. They are not interchangable.
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.
