Faxing over new Comcast digital line

Faxing over new Comcast digital line

Hi Folks,

 

A short time back I got Comcast digital voice in my house to replace the old verizon analogue.

 

Occasionally I have to send out a Fax from my house. I never have to receive them at home.

 

I have an older panasonic fax machine (2001 model) that worked very well over the old verizon line. Just plug in and fax. Done.

 

Now

 

If I need to send out an important Fax, am I going to have trouble over the new Comcast digital line???

 

If so is there anything I can do?

 

Thanks for response

Most fax machines will work on CDV, but in some cases you need to go into the Fax machines menu and set the baud rate for 9600.  Try it with the new settings.

Re: Faxing over new Comcast digital line

My fax machine technical data says under Modem speed.......written just like this in the manual..........

 

(9,600 / 7,200 / 4,800 / 2,400 bps; Automatic Fallback)

 

....does that mean its already at default 9,600 or lower.

 

If the machine is from 2001 maybe the rate is not higher than 9600 and I will be ok sending????

 

As I said I do not recieve faxes at home...........I only SEND them.

 

Thanks for any insight.
