No you would have to use a filter on the DSL line and connect that to an
analog modem.

Dee Ann;
You cannot send a fax on a DSL line. You will still need your modem
and a landline to send a fax.

well you could just use a service like e fax and not all the time do
you need to use a filter with dsl he could be set up as a spilter
install. whare they put a sptiler out in the nid and the dsl works off
of one jack.
