When fax tries to dial out the error is no dial tone, however I have checked
the connection using the modem query, fine, I have tested the modem in
hyperlink and it dials, and I have all cables plugged in correctly.
According to windows the modem works but according to fax it doesn't?

Is it a FAX modem? Are you disconnecting from the Internet
before trying to send a FAX?

You can't send a fax through a DSL connection. You have to connect the phone
line (without the DSL filter) directly from the output jack of the fax modem
to the phone jack ( the DSL Modem is not in this connection at any time).
DSL is a digital connection. A fax needs an analog connection. You must
connect directly to the phone jack from the fax modem. I use fax modem as
well as my cable connection without any problems, in fact I can send a fax
while reading my e-mail. The only time I have had any problems, is when I am
on the phone, forget and will try and send a fax at the same time I am
talking. I do remember when I hear the modem trying to dial out in my ear.

Plug a phone duplex (2 outlet) jack into the wall. Plug a filter with the
DSL connection from the DSL modem into one side and then plug the fax modem
connection into the other side without a filter. You should get a dial tone
and it should work just fine.
