Faxing

Windows’ Fax program lets you send and receive faxes through your PC, without an actual fax machine. You’ll need a phone line and almost any modem. Even an old 33.6 Kbps modem can send a multipage fax in a minute or two.

✓ Tips

  • Install the modem (a conventional modem, not a DSL or cable modem) before you start the Fax setup process. Make sure that the modem is connected to a phone line and the phone line is connected to a working jack.

  • You can’t use your DSL or cable connection for faxing...yet...but VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) technology will change this.

  • To fax documents that aren’t computer files, you’ll need a scanner (see Chapter 9). Faxes are sent in black and white at a default resolution of 150 × 150 dpi, which any scanner can manage.

  • If you don’t want to buy a modem or tie up your phone line, consider one of the internet-based fax services listed at http://directory.google.com/Top/Computers/Internet/Internet_Fax/Services.
