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.
