I have a WAG54GP2 with VFX running on line 1 to which my cordless is plugged in.  I need to add a fax machine.  Does anybody know if there would be any problems adding a RJ11 double adapter to Line 1 so I can split the line for my cordless phone and also have my fax plugged in?  I know faxing is a bit sensitive with VOIP so was wondering if this could create any extra issues or if someone out there has this setup working fine for them already.

A double adaptor will work okay, but I suggest you use the "double adapter" built into the fax machineTongue out which actually disconnects the phone while sending/receiving a fax.

Or why not just pay a few extra bucks (or maybe no extra bucks if an Xnet BB customer) and get a second VFX line dedicated to the fax machine? Guess it depends on how much faxing you do.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
