    I had a XP for more than 10 years with the hp2610 hooked up and the fa
    worked until I had a power surge that completely fried the computer.
    now have a laptop hp pavilion with the same configuration and printer i
    doesn't fax anymore

    The fax only works when the printer is hooked up directly the phon
    port, directly bypassing the computer all together. I have downloade
    all the hp2610 all-in-one I can find. I have changed the back of th
    printer to the other port thinking that would work but it still doesn'
    work. Any ideas

    I originally had the configuration of hooking the phone line into th
    laptop first and the printer would work. That's the way a "normal" setu
    works for the printer. But the fax part of this configuration wasn'
    working that way. It only worked if I bypassed the configuratio
    (laptop) and hooked the phone line into the printer itself. That onl
    tells me that the modem, inside my laptop computer, wasn't working th
    way it should be. I have a DSL setup also which means I shouldn't hav
    to work with the modem at all. Have I got this all screwed up
