View Full Version : Direct faxing from the computer



26-11-2001, 09:16 AM
One of the things that has bugged me ever since moving up from 'snail' modems to ADSl is the inability to fax directly from the computer. I know there are web based fax services, but apart from reintalling the old modem (and I don't have enough irqs to do that) is there another way round it?

I was looking at the same problem when I went dsl but as it turned out there was enough irq's to go round. The only solutiuon my tech offered was a separate stand alone fax machine if the 56k modem had not been useable.
I would also be interested in any work arunds to this as my daughter is just about to go dsl as well and she has a older computer which might not handle both modems.

don't worry too much about irqs - get an external modem.
i have set this up for numerous people - plus it always pay to still have the old modem, esp. when the other services don't work
