Overview: Set up the A960 All-In-One Printer for Stand-Alone Faxing

Note:
This document pertains to the ability to utilize stand-alone faxing to send or receive faxes.
Stand-alone faxing allows you to send and receive faxes without the need to have your computer turned on or running.



Stand-Alone Faxing for DSL Users

Note:
DSL delivers digital data to a computer through a telephone line; the Dell A960 All-In-One printer is designed to work with analog data.
If you are faxing over a telephone line connected to a DSL Modem, it is recommended that you install a DSL filter to avoid interference with the analog fax modem signal.

  1. Connect the DSL filter to an active telephone line.

Note:
Do not install any splitters between the DSL filter and the printer.

Note:
Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) and cable modems are not fax modems and are not supported for faxing.

To prevent your A960 All-In-One printer from malfunctioning when sending or receiving stand-alone faxes, verify that the telephone connections to your A960 are connected as indicated below:
