The Pixma MX330 Line port needs to be connected to a POTS (plain old telephone service) line jack with an RJ-11 cable. A standard corded telephone or the base of a cordless system gets connected to the Tel port on the MX330. The Comcast modem connects devices to the internet. You might be able to use a VOIP (voice over internet protocol) service between the MX330 and the modem. You will need the appropriate hardware (MagicJack, Ooma) in between the modem and the Pixma and get an assigned telephone phone number.

Generally, you will need a compatible router to share the cable modem's internet service between any computers and a stand-alone VOIP system like the Ooma.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more about your Comcast hardware for additional information. I know my home's fiber-optic modem service does support POTS, in addition to the internet and TV service. Each service has their own wiring/jacks that go back to the modem.

What type of fax copier? Some models have what is called line suspend to keep people from interfering with the transmission of information, this includes other phones inputting dial tones. In general it is best to have a landline that is dedicated to the use of the fax machine.

All fax machines are ANALOG devices. They are designed to work on POTS (Plain Old Telephone System). Any other condition is a **** shoot.

There is nothing wrong with your modem. Comcast charges extra for a second line. Depending on your model of fax machine, there should be both an input ond an output on the back of the fax machine. Plug the fax machine into line 1 on the modem. Then, plug your phone into the input on the back of the fax machine. If you fax does not have both in and out, then you can purchase a "Y" phone line adapter from your local electronics store.

ps. VoIP is a digital line... Facsimiles are analog signals... Sending analog signals over digital lines is not recomended. If you are wondering "why?" (and understand tech jargon) VoIP is sent via UDP, which is a connectionless protocol (does not retransmit dropped packets) Fax machines use TCP, which does resend dropped packets. This variance in Qualiy of Service sometimes cases strange activity such as both lines (sending and receiving) dropping connections, faxes taking a long time to transmit (due to constant resending loops), etc. It does work... kind of. I would just not assume that faxes made it to their destination until it gets confirmed.

8860 wont send or recieve fax on cable modem


Fax machines usually only work over regular phone lines, not through digital cable or DSL systems. If your phone is a VOIP phone, it is a digital system and your fax will not work. It needs to be plugged into the Plain Old Telephone System (POTS) which is an analog system.

Since you have a DSL ( Digital Subscribers Line ), the HP Fax printer works on Analogue Signals.

To make the GP Printer work on Digital line, First step you can do is to Reduce the Fax Speed from Fast/Medium to SLOW.
To Do so, Click on Setup button on printer front panel - Choose Fax Settings - Choose Fax Speed - Set it to Slow and try to fax

If this does not work, you will have to connect a DSL Filter ( this is a 2 way port - 1 port for Digital line and another for Analogue )
You will have to connect this Filter to DSL Phone line - in the IN port and from the Analugoue Port - Connect Phone cable to Printer Line 1 EXTN Port at back of Printer

Need manual for connecting fax to phone line and computer


Simple:

* one telephone-wire from wall-outlet to port on FAX labelled "line" or "telco";

* one telephone-wire from port labelled "phone" (or an icon of a telephone) to the port on your computer's modem labelled "tel" or "telco" (if your modem has more than just one port).

So, "incoming" telephone-calls go the FAX, to be "answered" by the FAX, while "outgoing" dial-up-Internet connections from your computer's modem "pass-through" the FAX, and to to the wall-port, and further along to the Internet Service Provider.

Dell printer A940 fax trouble


Unless you have 'VOIP' telephone service with Comcast, your FAX will connect through your home's telephone line, not the internet (or modem). You would connect your phone line to the all-in-one printer, then follow Dell's instructions for use. Good luck!

Not sending fax


Plug a phone into that line and see what happens. Let me know what happens. Plug the phone into the line that goes into the fax machine. Make sure it works and is clear. No static or noise.

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. 2. You hire an Internet E-faxing service. See · http://www.slipstick.com/addins/services/fax.htm#internetfax · http://www.slipstick.com/addins/services/fax.htm · http://www.savetz.com/fax Tim
