I have an Ooma Hub delivering dial tone to my home's inside wiring.

I would like to buy a large multifunction laser/copy/fax machine, and place it in a separate room from the Ooma Hub.

Is this possible or will this not work? All of the fax FAQs I've seen say to plug the fax machine directly into the Hub.

Unfortunately we do not have a list of fax machines that are compatible. We recommend connecting the fax machine to the "Phone" port on the back of the hub. You will probably need to do some experimenting.

I have tried to connect my Ooma hub to my house wiring without success. I'd appreciate hearing exactly what you connected to what in case I have missed something.

I have both the wall and phone jacks from the Hub plugged into the home's inside wiring using a splitter, and a Scout plugged into another location in the house.

You are doing the same thing as me. Mix HPNA and dialtone before distributing to the house wiring. Because of this, I have a DSL filter connected to the fax and my fax works fine. I do the DSL filter for my Dish receivers too.
