I have DSL through Verizon and would like to send my Resume from home through
my laptop (Dell Inspiron 4000).

I am using a D-Link DFE-690TXD CardBus PC Card with Windows XP Pro (SP2). My
fax wizard does not see it though. I know that you can only send faxes
through analog lines but isn't there a way to send it to the broadband modem
(Westell wirespeed) to then connect it to the analog line?

I have one phone line and my laptop does not have a line out phone jack. Do
i have to route my phone line to both my broadband modem and my dial-up modem
to be able to use the fax service? (currently the only way for me to do that
without more purchases is to disconnect my broadband modem to plug in my
dial-up modem.)

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

You need a regular analog modem which connects to an analog phone
line. If your ADSL provider is the local telephone company, the
ADSL line is also a voice telephone line. If so, you need an ADSL
filter to remove the high frequency noise from the voice side.
Verizon usually provides several filters. You would then run a
telephone cord from your laptop modem to that filtered connection.
If you do not have a separate telephone jack, you will need a
splitter. The filter for wall phones has a splitter built in. Make
sure that the ADSL model is connected to the unfiltered signal.

Corrected "model" to "modem" above and removed trailing line below
my message. The cursor must have been in the wrong place.
