Fax Machines that work on VOIP lines

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by John Breckenridge, Aug 12, 2005.

  1. Is anyone making a Fax machine that works with "PAcket8" VOIP?

    Mine pulls the letter about halfway through and then it stops and
    errors out.

    Thanks

    The bandwidth is too low.

  3. Well,

    I have Charter Communications 128 up and 3,000 down.

    Isn't that enough speed? Or do I need more upline speed?

    I could go buy a new Fax Machine if they have some that will work with
    VOIP.

    Or I could continue paying six dollars a month to use these Internet
    faxxing services like "ureach.com" and "efax"

    Have you contracted the folk who made your fax machine?

  5. About three months ago I did. At that time Hewlett Packard, and the
    other major fax companies said they were still trying to work out the
    differences between faxxing using an analog signal versus a digital
    signal over my "Packet8" phone line.

    They said that sometimes their machine would work OK, and sometimes
    they won't.

    So I pay "UREACH.com" six dollars a month to use their faxxing
    service.

    I would rather have my own machine that worked properly though.




    I was just checking to see if they have any new developments.
