Faxing issues

I am looking for suggestions on how to get my Comcast phone service to work better with my fax machine.  Suggestion other than add a line or fine a digital carrier.  It seems to work ok, when I plug in directly from the modem to the fax.  However, I also run a security system off the phone line and it will not work when I run the line from my modem, through the fax and the out to the rest of the house.  I have tried a spliter with a filter.  I couldn't get it to work at all doing that.  When I run the line from the modem to the house, then the house to the fax, I swear only 1 in 10 faxes goes.

If you are running your security system of the same line the best thing would be to get an additional line without features. The reason for this is that, issues could arise and your alarm might not work properly otherwise. A second line with no features usually starts at 11.95, but this can varried depending on the area.
