Would any one no if there is any program to run that if my fax machine which is connected too the same line as my ADSL should not affect the connection, as I am going mad every time I get a fax my ADSL disconnects

Thank you

do you have a filter on the fax machine? If no then fit one, if yes then replace it.

Facsimile runs on an analogue phone signal. ADSL is, of course, digital. So the two don't mix any more than ADSL and phones mix.

If you haven't got a micro-filter on the fax line's wall socket, get one. It sounds like you haven't.

Fruitbat; you flew in there a minute quicker! Echo location perhaps...

There are a few incompatible fax machines, what make/model do you have ?

Fruit bats fly by day and have very good eyesight.

You're right of course. I was hoping you wouldn't spot that!

A lot of bats have good eyesight...:-)

That's how they spot new threads quickly. ;-)
