Fax Setup?

Fax Setup?

How does everyone have there fax setup with CDV?
 
I just got a HP All in One 6310.
 
Setup right now in my office is the wall jack cord goes directly to the CDV Modem.  Now on the back of this HP it has a Line1 and Ext2.
 
Should I put a splitter in the wall jack and split the cords that way? 
 
***Update
I put the splitter in the wall jack then ran the 2 phones to the Printer and Modem.  Everything appears to be working.

Did you set the printer to Fax?

Re: Fax Setup?

Normally, you run a cable from the modem to line in on the Printer and then attach the phone to Loie out on the printer.

Another option is to arrange for a second number for Fax Only and then attach your printer to Jack 2 on the modem and your phone to Jack 1 on the modem.

Re: Fax Setup?

I had to place my modem in another room and plug it into a separate phone jack.  Then back in my office, I placed a phone jack splitter in the wall and ran a line to my fax and another line from the splitter to my phone.

 

Previously I tried all combinations of running the phone line from the modem directly to the fax machine and then a line from the EXT jack of the fax to my phone - but nothing would work until I moved the modem to a separate room phone jack.

 

Don't know why but it's working now.
