    Good Day everyone

    For once I don't have a problem! (y) Im just opinion seeking. I need to use a fax from time to time and I am thinking of making use of Windows Fax, that comes bundled on the XP CD.

    Has anyone reading this, made use of it, and if so how did they find it? I have one concern, and that is if I should use it, is there a possibility that installing the fax drivers, they can overwrite my modem/router files? Sure, I could re-install them, but I'd like to know in advance.

    I have a US Robotics Internal 56K Voice/Fax Modem (relic of ye olde dial-up days) Windows XP Home, 1 GB of RAM, P4. My router which I use as an ADSL modem, is a Billion 7401VGP. Let's hear your moaNS, groans and praises.

    Thanks

    I haven't used it for a couple of years, but it comes in handy when bulk faxing from documents on your system.

    But also just a s a fax machine because you can manage your faxes like email sort of....saves paper because you don't have to print all the junk!

    There should be no issue with your router, it will work with the Fax/modem...I assume your using a phone line not VOIP.

    Thanks for that Ziggy 1. I'm sure it will integrate well with the xp (et al) . I was just a bit concerned about tuning my modem drivers upside down. Thanks for the info. Oh, and yes I'm using a phone line and not VOIP. Larry (aka MoreProblems)
