PostPosted: Sun Sep 30, 2007 2:14 pm    Post subject: Newbie question on how to physically connect a fax machine Reply with quote Back to top

Hello, I have been reading a lot of topics but can't seem to get my question answered. I have had Vonage for 2 years now and am getting ready to add a fax line.

I have the Vtech wireless router and 3 phones running thru a Comcast Cable Modem. I am in Minneapolis, MN.

I have a HP 6310 all in one machine and want to hook it up to a dedicated fax line.

My question is "how to do this?". Do I need a new router that has a phone line plug (my Vtech does not) and then just plug the HP the machine into that? What do I do with my existing Vtech wireless phones then?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Interesting question. I assume the Vtech to which you refer is one of the Voip phones. Is that correct?

If so, and it has no phone ports, then you'll definitely need another adapter. Generally speaking, you can buy additional adapters, register them with Vonage, and then move numbers around between your adapters using your online account page. I believe (but am not certain) that you can do this with a fax line. That way, your Vtech would continue to work, and your fax line, being a different number, could be set to work on the new adapter.

Steve, yes the VTech is one of the Vonage Voip phone sets. I was thinking about what you describe whereas I would take my current set up and simply plug it into one of the ports on the new adapter and then use the new phone line the new adapter provides for my FAX.

Follow up question would be can I use the cheap "base" adapter that only supports ONE phone line (since I really only need one hard line for fax) or do I have to get the upgraded one? I wouldn't even be plugging into the second hard line port of the 2 line adapter model.

Thanks again!

Yes, you would need a new adapter. If your current VTech is plugged into the modem via the ethernet cable, then the simplest thing to do would be to get the new adapter, plug IT into the modem, and then plug your VTech into the ethernet port on the back of the new adapter. If you are using a router, then just plug the new adapter into a spare ethernet port.

Modem ---> New Adapter ---> VTech

or

Modem ---> Router ---> New Adapter and VTech in different ports

This sound kinda like what I am trying to do. I need a "Phone Line" for my alarm. But I got the Vtech IP Phone. Can I add a Phone adapter to my line. Or do I need to buy another line? I want to use the IP Phone And the phone adapter, but Vonage say you cannot do this.

Is that correct?

THANKS!

You can't have 2 phone numbers on different adapters at the same time. As they try to authenticate with the server it will have issues and won't let them register. You can purchase an adapter at any local retailer such as target, kmart, walmart, circuit city, best buy - and the list goes on. Don't let the salesperson talk you into an expensive device like a wireless unless you are in need of one. You should be able to find one for about 40-50 dollars. Also, don't sign anything with them as you might be signing up for a new account (that you certainly don't need).

Once you get the new adapter, activate it by going to vonage.com and there is a link on the first page to activate a device. When that is done, simply add a cheap phone # to the port and plug your security into that. Another option would be to move your current phone # to the new adapter then

1. use a splitter - one to a phone (you won't be able to use the IP-8100) and the other to the security.

or

2. Plug the line into your home wiring and you will be able to plug your security into any of the jacks in your house.
