Can Comcast broadband and internal fax modem work together?
I recently had Comcast broadband hooked up for the internet (also phone and cable). I also have an internal 56K fax modem on my desktop. The problem is that when trying to send a fax via my desktop internal modem, it says "no dialtone" which, I suspect is because everything's going in/out of Comcast's SBV5220 modem. Comcast wasn't a bit of help -- but I know there must be a way around this. Can anyone give some assistance?
Well, Comcast is "cable", fax modem uses POTS phone line
You need to connect your fax modem to an RJ11 telephone jack to use it. You are confusing a cable modem, which is a digital device used to connect you to the internet, with an analog fax modem, which uses the plain old telephone system to send your faxes. Hook up your faxmodem to a telephone like and your problem is solved.
