Trying to hook up my fax machine

I need to fax out a resume.  We have a fax machine.  We have our phone line hooked up to our modem.  What do i hook up the fax line to??

There is no phone jack on my wall because we have cable modem and phone.

  • A phone jack isn't going to work if you don't get your service from a phone company

  • You put the fax machine in a phone outlet and plug it in, now if you have digital phone, you may not be able to. You could email the resume as well.
    You don't need to worry about hooking it up to the internet, just the phone line.

  • If you have no phone outlet, how do you use the phone? The cable modem is what your phone service comes through, but you still need a jack to plug the actual phone into.

  • Yeah,mine too,and my phone plugs into the modem,not the wall jack. The wall jacks here only work with the companies that still have analog service

  • You can't use a fax with digital phone, you are going to have to either go to office max, or use HD scan to fax it.

  • You surely have jacks all over the house.
    Really I would go to your local grocery store and pay to have them fax it, I have digital phone, and can't fax, I do have HD scan on my IPAD, you can take a picture of the resume and then fax it.
    Do you have a telephone in your house? Plug it into another jack, and see if you get a dial tone, then hook up the fax.
