In addition to what Jacob said, ethernet is not the same thing as a phone cord. However, before broadband, people used the phone lines to connect to the internet, but it was excruciatingly slow. Ethernet actually started out as two phone cords which were twisted together.

This is a simple cord which allows you to plug an ethernet cord into your computer. The primary use is most likely for the MacBook Air's which do not have a built in ethernet port.
This will not provide any significant additional functionality to your computer that you would not have with a Wi-Fi connection.
It has been over 15 years since I worked with true faxing on a computer but I believe that would require a telephone line and a modem capable of such a functionality.
