Can not send out fax from voip line?

If you are using VoIP which has modem, you can't send fax obviously. You must connect you fax machine to separate lines directly to your ADSL splitter. But, if you are using like ringcentral, you can still fax via internet using you computer or using your fax machine. also has a solution without having to buy hardware or software. It's call computer faxing. has an online fax solution too and it is more reliable and alot cheaper than sending your fax through VoIP lines. It is possible under certain conditions to send a fax over a VoIP line, but it's proven to be highly unreliable in general, and is "officially unsupported" by most VoIP providers. The issue is that VoIP was designed for voice calls, not modem calls. My company, FaxLogic, and one other I know of, Nextiva, make "adapters" that allow you to connect a regular fax machine to the Internet. Unlike "faxing over VoIP", where the modem signal "rides" the VoIP channel (and generally doesn't work), this is "faxing over IP", where the modem signal is converted into data packets by the adapter, which traverse the Internet (or other IP network) just like any other data packet. It's a reliable system designed specifically for fax, and makes a great compliment to VoIP.

How do you connect a mobile phone with a wireless fax machine?

To print to a fax machine wirelessly from a mobile phone: you would need a fax machine (or multifunction) with wifi capability. The drivers (or app) would be on the phone, and you could fax from the phone that way. This depends on the technology that both your phone and fax machine have. To fax from a mobile phone: there are services called "online fax" services that will let you send or receive faxes from a phone or computer. To fax wirlessly from a fax machine through a cell phone: this technology isn't on the market, however there are "GSM faxes" that can operate off of a cell phone signal.

Why does your fax ring but not receive pages?

In many cases, it is a wrong number or someone who called on the phone, got the fax signal, then hung up. In other cases, it can be a symbol that your fax machine isn't hooked up properly, or that it is connected to a phone line it can't communicate with (such as a VoIP line).

How do you connect a fax machine?

You connect a fax machine by following the instructions in the machine's user manual - every machine can potentially be different. On the most basic level, a fax machine will require a power source (from the power area of the machine to a power socket) as well as a phone connection - usually this is an RJ 11 plug (the same as a regular phone plug) that connects from the phone line on the fax machine to the phone line in the wall.

How do you receive a fax in fax machine?

To receive a fax in a fax machine: 1) connect the fax machine to a phone line 2) have the person sending the fax send the fax to the phone/fax line number 3) receive the fax with the fax machine. Most fax machines should be set to automatically receive, however some will need you to press the "ok" or green button when the fax line is ringing.
