Many users don't realize that faxing is a function that can only use analog
phone lines and analog fax modems. Accordingly, no fax software will
function with cable modems or DSL lines. With some DSL connections you can
obtain a DSL line filter suitable for connecting a standard analog voice
line to the DSL line and can then connect an analog fax modem to that line.

If you have no analog modem or phone line, you will need to use a fee based
Internet Fax Service. Several are listed here: http://www.savetz.com/fax/

Russ....

Thank you for this info. Windows should have no problems handling a DSL line
using a USB cable for connection and a regular phone line connected to a com
port for the fax, right?

As long as you have an analog fax modem on the Windows XP HCL list attached
to an analog phone line, you should be good to go.
