    Glad you asked! No, I have not dial tone. Yet, I'm currently using my DSL service, even though I get no dial tone when I plug a phone into the DSL port on my modem. How can this be?

There you go. Stop by Radio Shack and pick up a DSL filter and hook it up to the wall outlet of your fax machine. If the DSL modem is next to your fax machine, plug the fax machine into the outlet marked as phone.

I just got done doing this to both of my offices. Typically the phone company will use your fax line to piggyback the DSL. All you have to do is make sure your DSL modem output goes to the fax line either through the wiring block in your office or directly to the back of the modem itself.

That way you won't need the filter.

SOURCE: connecting fax to phone line kills my house phones

Fax machines are analog devices. It sounds like you have a DSL phone line.

Diagnostic light keeps blinking


Check the LED lights that are blinking on the front of the DSL modem. Check the "Internet/Online" LED and make sure it is blinking green or a solid green. If this LED is not blinking, then the modem is not getting a phone signal, or the service is out. Remove the line and check it to make sure that you're getting a signal.
Check to see if filters are connected to the phone lines that are all around the house. These filters separate the phone line from the DSL line so that the lines do not crosswire and disturb the Internet connection or the phone connection. The DSL is usually shipped with a couple of phone filters. These phone filters can be purchased at many electronics stores or provided free from your Internet Service Provider.Check to see if the modem is connected to a wireless router. If the modem is connected to the router, try disconnecting the router and connect the modem straight to a computer. If the modem is also a multi-port wireless router, then connect the computer to a different port on that same router.Reset the router if the previous steps do not resolve the problem. Follow the initial set up instructions given to you when you first installed the router. Perform any firmware updates that might be needed once online, and use the discs that came with the modem.

The line filters may be faulty. You may need to replace some lins filters.
Try disconnecting all your phones and faxes while you are on the Internet to see if the problem still occurs.

Hi irwinbadin,

HP fax products are designed so that other telephone equipment can be connected on the same line as the fax. The unit must be connected first using a two-conductor fax/phone cable like the one that shipped with the HP product. Using a four-conductor telephone cable may cause problems receiving faxes or calls.

There are two different types of phone cables. There are two-conductor phone cables like what originally shipped with the HP fax product and there are four-conductor cables. HP fax products are designed to work with a two-conductor phone cable. Look at the end of the cable and verify that it has only two copper leads or wires. Replace any four-conductor cables with a two-conductor cable. Only two-conductor phone cables should be used to connect the all-in-one to the phone line.

Figure 1: The difference between a two-conductor phone cable and a four-conductor phone cable

Step one: Connect the phone line to the fax
The fax will have two or three sockets (or jacks) for phone lines. Some of these may have a removable plastic plug in them. These sockets will be labeled with text, To Wall Jack , or with a graphic of the wall jack. See Figure 1 below.

Plug the two-conductor telephone cable that came with the HP product into the telephone wall jack. Then, plug it into this socket as shown below.

In areas with above ground telephone lines and electrical storms (lightning), it is a good idea to purchase a telephone line surge suppressor and connect it between the telephone wall jack and the fax. This will help prevent damage to the fax from a lightning-caused power surge on the phone line.

Step two: Add other phone-line devices
To connect other telephone devices, use the other socket (or sockets) on the fax. These are identified by text or with a graphic of a telephone and/or computer.

Connect a caller ID unit between the fax and the telephone.
Use the information below that matches the devices you need to connect.

Fax and telephone
Connect a single-line telephone to one of the added sockets on the fax. The telephone will share the same phone line as the fax. See the illustration below.

Fax, answering machine, and telephone
When a telephone answering machine and telephone are connected, connect the answering machine to the fax and then connect the telephone to the answering machine as shown below.

Fax, computer modem, and telephone
To use a computer modem and a telephone with the fax, connect the computer modem to the fax. Then, connect the telephone into the second phone line connector on the computer modem or the third fax socket (if it is available).

Fax, modem, answering machine, and telephone
The image below shows how to connect a computer modem, answering machine, and telephone to a fax. Connect the computer modem to the fax, then connect the answering machine to the computer, and finally, connect the telephone to the answering machine.
If the fax has three phone line sockets instead of two, some of the devices can be connected to the other phone socket on the fax.

Can not phone out or receive phone calls bt say my line is ok, my broad band works ok but not my phone


When did it start?
You haven't mentioned what you hear when you lift the receiver and try to dial out.
Please try this: (A process of elimination.)
- Unplug your modem from the telephone line.
- Plug your telephone directly to the telephone line without going through the line filter.
- It should work OK. If the phone is not defective, you should hear a clear dial tone.
- Now connect your phone through the line filter and try to use it again.
- If it does not work then you need a new line filter for your telephone.
- If it works, then re-connect your modem back to the telephone line like it was before.

If the modem knocks out your phone again, please contact the modem supplier.

No Dial tone using Symantec Winfax Pro 10 on Windows 98


Check the physical connection of the phone line to the computer make sure that it is connected to phone line symbol of the Ethernet adapter. Then make sure that the driver of the adapter is installed properly on the computer or you can try to scan the hardware first before the re-installation of the driver using the adapter.

I lost my manual and would like help in connecting to phone jack


Each phone or dial-up modem or fax machine needs a DSL filter attached to the phone line/socket then each phone or dial-up or fax machine is then plugged into this filter.
The DSL modem does not require a filter.
If your fax is part of the computer's modem then a filter is also required on the line-in on the modem.
The instructions for sending & receiving depends upon your system/dial-up modem (the make & model, is it stand alone or a modem adapter on the expansion slot or built-in on the motherboard) and the software you are using. Cannot help you without these details.

Lost pc fax capability


The way you should set it up is use a splitter at the wall. One phone cord will go to the modem, a separate phone cord with a dsl filter on it will go to the modem on your pc. This will give your pc the capability to fax provided you have the software.

jon, I am assuming you have DSL modem. Sending a fax by DSL requires one of two methods: 1. You obtain a DSL line filter suitable for connecting a standard voice telephone to the DSL line, then connect an analog fax modem to the line through the line filter. Good Luck, Tim
