DT8 - I believe I cannot answer that without getting hands on with the connections. I do not even know how you are connected.

How about answering a few simple connections -

Does your phone/ cord work in a jack in another location where that phone is working?

Does it work when plugged into the output tel jack of the RG?

Does it work in both of the jacks on the splitter when the splitter is plugged in to the RG?

Does it work when plugged into the second jack on the Fax & the first jack is plugged into the RG?

What is the model number of the fax & I will see what the manual says.

Re: U-verse service

Connect your fax machine directly into the back of your modem where it says "PHONE LINES 1&2"........does your fax machine work. Your dial tone come our of the modem vs our of the phone box outside with Uverse. Try the steps that aviewer gave and see if that helps as well.
