Install fax without CD-ROM

  Terrygee 18:36 30 Mar 2008

I'm running under XP SP2. XP came ready loaded so I don't have the CD-ROM that the Fax wizard requires in order for me to install fax. Is there any way I can do this without the CD?

Don't want to appear rude but are you on broadband, if so you can not use fax, can only be used on dial up.

It's still perfectly possible to use a dial-up fax/data modem even with a broadband connection available, as it's the narrowband (voice) section of the phone line that is used.

If Using BroadBand Fax can be sent Indirect using Software and third party that supports it, But using a Dial-Up Modem is best. This just connects to the Phone side of the Filter a ISP is not needed

Thats what i tried to say thanks.
Sorry if I caused any confusion, as I understood, it could not be sent over broadband as that is digital and a fax is analog and will be sent on the voice bit. Not meaning you cant have both on a computer.

The above links lead me to resolve an unrelated problem I was having many thanks.
