    Unlike most dial-up modems, a DSL modem is not capable
    of connecting to fax machines, so you cannot send or receive faxes
    directly using DSL.

    In order to send and receives faxes, you'll need a conventional fax modem
    with a live telephone line attached. You cannot use broadband unless you
    use a web-base fax service, such as eFax:

    Or consider purchasing a regular fax machine and connect it to your phone
    line.

    The general answer is no, but for a fuller response see the Internet
    Fax FAQ at http://www.faxbeep.com/internet-fax-faq/

    The faxbeep.com site also offers an extensive list of internet fax
    services, through which you can fax using your DSL internet
    connection.
