Is it possible to have both your voice Vonage service and fax Vonage service on the same Vonage line, without having to get a second one?

I have a regular "voice" Vonage line and use it for faxing without any issues. I don't think you would need a fax line unless you wanted it to be dedicated for faxing.

Yes you could use your main line or "voice" line for faxing if you won't be using it for business or not be making too much faxing. Smile

To those that use a fax on the same Vonage line, can you please let us know if you're using a dedicated fax machine OR software like Winfax, from your PC and a modem like ModemBlaster

I have been having a very difficult time faxing from my PC...

Thanks.

I use one of those all-in-one printers with a fax. It isn't close to my Vonage router, so I have it hooked up via one of those wireless phone line extenders. I was a little skeptical that it would work, but I haven't had any issues. The faxes seem to take a little longer than when I had it connected directly to my land line though.

Rob28, I agree with the prior posts, but keep in mind that there doesn't seem to be any practical way to receive a fax automatically if you're sharing a voice line. That's fine in my house, but it may not be in yours.

I have a HP 5610 fax/printer that I use on my Vonage line. I have a phone wire from my voice adapter to the fax and then from the fax to my cordless phones. I set the fax to work as if it is attached to an answering machine. When I receive a call (or the answering machine - not Vonage voice mail!) receives a call, I answer the phone. The fax machine automatically listens in on the call. If it hears the fax tones, after about 4 tones, the fax takes the call away from my answering machine/phone and receives the fax. It works great for me. I had a Motorola VT1005 that worked well, but I just upgraded to the new Motorola VT2542 and that works great. It seems that the faxes always work now. I am also using a DLink DPR1260 as a wireless print server. The print server is attached to the fax via USB and to my network via wireless. I do not have any problems at all with this setup.

I have a single Vonage line and the fax/voice works fine for me. I read somewhere some time ago that for Voip faxing, the modem had to be set at 9600 or less. My USRobotics 56k has been set at this speed. None of the other posters have mentioned this constraint, so perhaps it is incorrect. What do you guys think?

My fax is set at high and connects and transmits very fast. HP's web site says the following regarding my fax equipment:

CCITT/ITU Group 3 fax with error correction mode (ECM)
33.6 Kbps transmission speed
3 seconds per page speed at 33.6 Kbps (based on ITU-T Test Image 1 at standard resolution. More complicated pages or higher resolution take longer and use more memory.)

I have no experience with a computer modem and Voip faxing but memory tells me in the past, that an external modem tends (I repeat tends) to perform better and more consistently than an internal modem. Perhaps this has changed, but I do not know.
