Cable Internet and Faxes

I do a relatively minute bit of faxing through my phone line a week. Not a lot, but enough for faxing to be necessary through my computer. I also want cable internet. Can I still have cable internet and send faxes with it, since it is an always on connection?

I am curious because I know you can still send faxes with your dialup modem still in my machine,(with cable) but I'm afraid I might have to remove it, as I still need to put in a NIC card in for cable and I don't think I have enough PCI slots or whatever they're called. Basically, can i send faxes with a cable modem? Thanks.

Nope. Faxes work by dialing directly into another fax machine. The internet is not used when sending a fax. Just keep the modem and get a USB NIC or something

If you do a little bit of research, you can get software that will let you send and receive faxes over your internet connection (this would include cable). Might want to try http://download.cnet.com and do a search.

Try eFax.com! Because of the nature of my business, I send and receive faxes on an almost hourly basis and didn't want to buy an expensive fax machine or have a modem installed into my system. I have one toll free 888 number and one UK number. Check it out!

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
