can you setup the fax function to send faxes through wireless internet that comes from cable?

I have an HP Officejet Pro 8500A it is setup on a wireless network. Our internet provider uses cable to provide the internet signal. is it possible to setup and send faxes through the internet and cable, or does the fax function have to be setup on a phone line?

You device contain an Analog Fax modem.

In order to use the fax function, it is required to connect the device to a phone line.

the closest phone jack is two rooms away, it is not really a reasonable distance to try to plug it in. so is there a way to add something to the printer that would allow the printer to send fax through the cable internet?
