Distinctive ring is not an option with Voice.

A $5.00 DSL filter solved the issue with fax reception. Never had an issue with sending faxes, just reception. Today's digital lines carry lots of noise.

My Canon MX 922 highjacks voice calls. The machine is wired and set up correctly. I can send and recieve fax. I can make a voice phone call (same phone line). However when recieving a voice call the fax machine "highjacks" the call after a minute or so. Would a DSL filter solve the problem?

I would speculate that a dsl filter would prevent the high jacking. $5 to see if it would solve the issue your having seems reasonable.
