HP All in ONe

HP All in ONe

Is there a way to get my HP all-in-one printer to recognzie a dial tone from the cable modem box?

I'd like to be able to send and receive faxes on my Comcast service.

Thanks.

Re: HP All in ONe

You can plug in the all in one to do faxes.  Take a 2 wire telephone cord and connect your all in one with fax to the L1/L2 jack on your eMTA telephony modem or gateway device.  You might need to and a 2 way telephone splitter so the inside phone wiring stays connected.

 

Don't use a standard 4 wire telephone cord on HD all in one fax devices.

Re: HP All in ONe

There should be 2 phone ports on the fax machine.  Run a standard phone wire from the modem to the fax machine, then connect your phone to the second port on the fax machine.  Be sure to connect them in the right order on the fax machine or it won't work.  There are only 2 ports, so if one way doesn't work , switch them.

Thw modem will have 2 phone ports, but only 1 works.
