Just a thought but if your fax modem is onboard do you have a line skt and a modem skt or just a single. If it's a single socket you won't be able to connect both devices at once.

You have to connect it through a Filter to phone line

Hi. I have a micro filter and could try through a modem instead to fax

Yes it should work through Dial-Up modem and Fax software. If the Modem is connected through Filter phone side of filter
