SOURCE: baud rate
1. Why 9600?
Because you are using a VOIP service it can from time to time lose connection briefly. The slower the speed the less data can be loss do to network congestion. It also gives the error correcting function of the receiving fax a better chance of filling in any lost data.
9600 is a good choice becasue the industry minimum is 9600. This means you will be able to communicate pretty much any fax thats is still tickin today. Raising the speed will get you a faster transfer but will also increase the chance that you are sending data at a faster rate than the recieving fax can send.
2. How to change the baud rate....
Press Menu/Set, 2, 0, 1.
Press ▲ or ▼ to select Basic or
Normal (or High*).
* High is available for FAX-2910, FAX-2920
and MFC-7225 only.
Basic reduces the modem speed to 9600
bps. Unless interference is a recurring
problem on your phone line, you may
prefer to use it only when needed.
Normal sets the modem speed at
High sets the modem speed at

Was the fax plugged into another telephone line? Maybe a power surge?
My solution would be to reconfigure the fax from scratch to learn the ring pattern.
From the Manual:
Step 1-Teach the HP Fax the ring pattern
The HP Fax will learn the ring pattern when you call it from another telephone or fax
1. Be ready to call the fax machine.
2. Press Menu repeatedly until BASIC FAX displays and press OK.
3. Use LEFT ARROW - RIGHT ARROW BUTTONS to scroll through the options until DRPD Mode displays and press OK.
Call this fax from another fax machine... Waiting Ring...
4. Call the HP Fax.
DRPD OK will display when the pattern has been learned and the HP Fax will return
to Ready mode.
Step 2-Set up distinctive ring (DRPD) answer mode
Once you have activated distinctive ring, it becomes one of the answering modes you
can select by pressing the Mode/Contrast button.
Press Mode/Contrast repeatedly until DRPD Mode appears in the display.
• In Ready mode, DRPD appears in the right hand corner of the display.
• Now, the HP Fax will manage calls and faxes as if it were set to AUTO mode
(AUTO mode on page 28)
TIP: Distinctive ring must be set up again if you reassign your fax number
or connect the machine to another telephone line. Once set up again (that
is, the fax machine has learned the ring pattern and the answering mode is
correctly set), you should test the fax machine by calling the fax number
and another number on the same line. The machine should respond
appropriately to a call placed to the fax number with fax tones, and to a
normal telephone call with the expected ring pattern.
