I tried all of the solutions listed on the document, still with no success but found a link for HP to diagnose problem and it turned out to be my firewall settings were too high. Thank you for your help!!

Thanks.  I did try all of the optons except using a DSL filter.  I did not have one previously, and the fax worked for almost a year.  Not sure if getting one now will fix it but can try.
