setting up a brother 2820 fax machine

setting up a brother 2820 fax machine

I have just purchased a brother 2820 fax machine that will be used as a stand alone fax machine.  It is  not being connected to a printer or a pc.  I have comcast digital voice and use comcast voice mail on my phone.

 

In the room where I have my fax machine there is a phone outlet, but no phone is being used there.  The  only phone in my home is in another room and is using comcast digital voice.  Do I need to connect the fax machine to this phone in the other room or can I just plug it into the wall outlet in the room I have the fax machine in? And if I do need to connect the fax machine the my home phone, how do I do it without disrupting the service.  There is a modem connected to my main phone and I am not sure of the proper connections if I need to connect to that phone.

 

Thanks

If you CDV is wired to your phone outlets in you home, then you can plug the fax into the phone jack in the room that you have it located at, you do not need a phone in that room.

This is a duplicate thread, so I'm locking it.
