Hi Folks,
Since I moved from Telecom to Vodafone I've had trouble with my Brother ML100 fax.  It appears the faxability pattern is slightly different to what Telecom has and has now thrown the fax machine out of whack and is not picking up.

To test the theory, I connected a Canon MP 530 and set that up with faxability and it still won't pickup.

I've contacted Vodafone and they said there was a problem, but had it fixed.  They suggested I contact Brother to get them to change the settings on the Brother machine.  Well, there wasn't much on the fax machine to change, and it hasn't made much difference.

Anyone else experienced this, or has had success with their fax machine?

There are telepermit specs for the cadences for the rings. Either vodafone are within it or not.

They may have done something with line polarity reversal tho. I know that when I had the caller ID on my ATA set to something with polarity reveral (since it means my cordless would go straight to the correct ring for the caller vs one normal ring then getting the number) that my old fax/cordless thing would think everything was a fax.
