running XP with broadband from BT with a BT Voyager modem.

yes-you may need to install it from your xp disk.you will,I think, have to use a dial up modem

afaik you can't send faxes through a cable modem (broadband), it has to be dial-up faxmodem (as mentioned above). XP does have a fax feature though.

There are various companies on the web offering 'fax facilities', but I have never used them.

Not with broadband, you still need an analogue modem to send/receive faxes. What you can do is go to click here and sign up for their fax to email service (which is what I do) it costs £20 per year but all incoming faxes go into your email inbox. You will still need an analogue modem to send faxes though. I have broadband and an analogue modem. I use the modem for sending faxes only, I use Supervoice which comes free on many modem installation disks.

Tiscali offers a fax to e-mail service free, using the same method as the now lapsed FaxMe service.

You are given an exclusive 0871 xxx xxx number which is your fax number - anyone using it to send you a fax has a small proportion of the cost deducted as Tiscali's "reward".

I use XP's fax console (similar to the awfax.exe and wms.exe programs in Win98) to send faxes and the Tiscali number to receive them; this is necessary as obviously I don't know if a fax is coming because of using a dialup connection.

You have to place the Tiscali number on your cover sheet configuration.
