You cannot, you have to still have a landline connected to the fax, as the broadband is a different thing altogether, just get a double splitter adaptor from your wall socket and then connect the landline in one and your broadband filter in another, or just unplug the broadband and plug in normal phone line when you need to fax

Which phone can i hook up with printer


If you are referring to a multi-function printer/scanner/fax machine, you can use just about any phone that will work in a typical home. Most office phones DO NOT work with these multi-function devices as they use a digital signal from the PBX in the office.

A Standard phone as well as a standard phone line are required to use the fax capabilities of these units.

(more advanced users will know that you can use a standard POTS line emulator on a PBX - but it requires advanced PBX knowledge, the proper card and phone etc...)

I have the same problem. The Sync DSL light keeps on flashing. According to the 3Com and Singtel, they both blame one another. From my understanding, the modem is not receiving and internet signal at all....


Yes, when the sync light flashes it meand there is no sync to the DSLAM located at the exchange. This is usually down to either bad wiring (too much line noise) or the provider not having set the line up.

Have you tried connecting the router to the master socket in the house with no other equipment connected - phones faxes modems etc? they can cause problems sometimes.

Hi Brenda,

Your All In One wants a phone line hooked directly to it. It won't fax without a "POTS" line directly hooked to it. POTS stands for "Plain Old Telephone Service" which is the line with good old dial tone on it.

I have a PC(XP) connected to an Ornge Livebox; also a laptop with wireless connection to the Livebox, both working OK. How do I arrange for the laptop to use my Printer which is connected to the PC?


you have to enable printer sharing in the printers and faxes winsow pane. THen on the laptop go to the same pane and add a new printer, but select a network/LAN printer instead of a locally attached printer. THat should be all you need, just click through the prompts that come up and let it install any drivers it needs and you should be up and running.

I have a lexmark x7170 and it will not fax or recieve faxes. I have replaced the phone cord and verifyed that the plug indeed is working. What else can I try?


There are usually 2 phone jack ports on the back of the fax / MFP
One will say line, the other phone. You want to make sure it is plugged into the Line port.
Also, if you hit "On hook dialing" does it give you a dial tone?

Trying to hook-up a lexmark 5000 series printer/scan/fax to a ge cordless built in answering machine telephone through the computer


No.  Unless you're running Asterisk, which you can go read up on, you want to use a line splitter to have the FAX and phone both on the same line.

Can a Lexmark X4270 be used as a stand alone copier and fax without being hooked to the computer?


Absolutely! The only thing needed for use as a fax is being plugged into a live phone line. These are specifically designed for just that purpose so the computer does not have to be left running while fax machine and copier remain on in the office. Mainly so the office can shut down the computer when not needed to save power when not needed. Ex. to receive faxes at night when the office is closed. You only need to leave the printer on and it will function as a stand alone copier fax machine. The computer is only required when you want to print a document or scan a page and save it. I hope this fully answers your question.
If you have others feel free to ask.

Installed Lexmark 1240 but when I try to set up fax it says no modem found


Yes, This assumes that you are hooking the printer upto a 56k/Fax modem on the Computer, Which the Printer already has itself, What you will want to do, Is hook a Phone line upto the the Printer in the appropriate slot, and dont worry about setting the Fax feature up on your Computer, Just Worry about the Scanner, printer. For the Fax Feature, Dial the number on the Printer and It should work without Ever touching the Computer
