I have a linksys cable box.  It is attached to a linksys gigabit switch. I can get you the model tomorrow. What could this have to do with it?

Sorry, that was a total slip on my part... it has nothing to do with it.  I meant to ask, what's the make and model of your modem!  :-)

Model number?  The reason that I ask is that is that if it's a USR 5630, then that should work fine.  But the lesser expensive models can be problematic. Generally you need to have a Business Class modem... and those usually run about $70.00 or more.

Have you ever successfully received a multi-page fax on this setup?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

my gut says that if you just got this customer, and you haven't actually tested the fax yourself, then you're sending us all on a wild goose chase.

So, it doesn't have any problem at all receiving faxes when you tested it?  

Then have you asked the customer whether or not the problem faxes are coming from the same place?  Because perhaps the problem is on the sender's side.
