Hi,
I am trying to setup the fax on my pc (xp Home), I have a wirelesss network
using a router connected via ethernet cable to my host pc. When I run the
fax setup wizard it tells me that there is no modem installed, what do I
have to do to setup the fax?

TIA

Unlike most dial-up modems, a broadband modem is not capable
of connecting to fax machines, so you cannot send or receive faxes
directly.
In order to send and receives faxes, you'll need a conventional fax modem
with a live telephone line attached. You cannot use broadband unless you
use a web-base fax service, such as eFax:

Or consider purchasing a regular fax machine and connect it to your phone
line.

Even more annoying is that having got a fax modem on one computer, you
can't share it across your network.
