Hi,
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.
Cheers.

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.
