Yes, I know FAX is old tech, but occasionally I still need it. I shared a FAX/Phone line successfully with my previous Brother printer, so I know it can be done, but I'm having trouble doing the same thing with my new Epson Workforce. I have connected the wall phone socket to the LINE on the printer, and the phone itself to EXT on the printer. This is how Epson say it should be done, but it does not work. The only configuration that almost works is using a splitter and connecting one lead to the FAX and the other to the phone. However, even if I pick up the phone within the allotted number of calls, the FAX will still kick in and beep away while I am talking. I am in a Blue area with a Hub 3 which has two telephone sockets on the back, currently unused. Is this an impossible setup or can anyone suggest a solution without buying a second dedicated FAX line? Thanks.
The third paragraph states: If the All-In-One is connected to a DSL/ADSL (xDSL) phone line, you must have a DSL filter connected to the phone jack. Contact your DSL provider for the necessary filter, if they have not already provided one.
