How do I send faxes with Broadband?

I have broadband, and hence have no need to connect my 56k modem. Can anyone advise me if it possible to send faxes with this connection?

I was aware that there are some e-mail to fax services available, but wish to use a direct way as I would if I had my dial-up connection.

To send a fax you have to dial the recipients number, so you need the 56k. You can't do it through BB. The e-mail to fax that you refer to is actually fax to e-mail, someone sends you a fax and you receive it as an e-mail attachment.

you can't send a conventional fax via an ADSL connection, no matter what anybody tells you to the contrary.

Anything that goes via a broadband connection goes via the internet, and that means that it will go through a web server. The only real way to fax is down an analogue phone line, so you get the handshake from the receiving machine, and this must be done via your analogue modem.

I have NTL BB and have my analogue modem connected to the BT phone line for sending faxes through Win XPs own fax software. I have subscribed to the email fax service through click here this gives you your own fax no for people to fax and you receive the said fax by email.

havent had any problems and can thoroughly recommend it.
