  1. You need a fax machine if you want to receive fax on your house number. You can not receive fax on your computer unless you subscribe to an online fax service.
  2. If you have a fax machine, you can receive faxes by connecting it to the same phone line... you'll need a DSL filter inline with the fax machine. If you're using a fax modem inside your computer, then the same thing applies.... you need a DSL filter inline with the modem. You do not need an online fax service... all you need is a dial-up fax / modem and fax software. If you're using Vista Home Premium, you'll have to purchase separate fax software, but Business and Ultimate will have MS Fax built in.
