    ok, i need to send a fax. never really faxed before even on just a fax machine.
    i went into add/remove and made sure faxing service is installed under windows components. i have an all-in-one fax/copier/printer/scanner.

    how can i tell my computer to send it? i think you can do this, not sure though. i dont have a land line, so i can't use my computers modem.

    the only way to use faxing with broadband, is to use a fax service like efax.com etc.. you pay a small monthly fee or a one off charge.

    i also thing efax has a free trial thing as well so you may be able to send a few pages for free.

    yea, i know. kinkos or any one of a dozen places with a mile or two. just hoping it could be done from my set-up. i mean i have 7 computers, broadband, all kinds of equipment, plus pay like $50+/month for interent. the same IP service offers cable tv, phone, radio, everything. theres no reason why i should be able to send a freakin fax.

    reciveing i coud see being a problem.
