Is that a foreign car? A FAX needs a POTS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plain_old_telephone_servic...) connection. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer Major7up September 2, 2010 5:25:59 AM There are cat3 to cat5 adapters but these are for voice applications only (such as a voice multiplexer). And I have not seen such adapters available for purchase in a retail store either. What are you trying to plug your fax machine into? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
