Does anyone know of a work around: I plugged my Brother fax machine directly into the Verizon FiOS Optical Network Interface(ONT) in one of the phone jacks in the back of the terminal. I start the fax transmission. I get a busy signal. The fax is not sent. What am I doing wrong? Verizon has to know about this problem. Would I have to have a second line installed? Do I need a stronger phone cable? Thanks in advance.

I just had the telephone wire and cordless phone plugged in a multi line phone adapter a long with a line plugged from it to the Genie. I disconnected one of them and the fax machine had a dial tone. I also took the line from the fax machine and plugged it directly in the back of the Verizon ONT. The little square black ONT for small apartments. Problem solved. Now faxing! I guess I'm a teacher now. Yowza...

I believe the DIRECTV line being plugged in at the same time in the back of the ON THE causes the Fax machine to lose dial tone. So I disconnect that line from the back of the ONT. Then the Fax machine gets a dial tone. (A better clarification)
