That model has been discontinued and it's difficult to find the detailed specification. It appears though to be a Printer/Copier/Scanner but *not* also incorporating Fax. Does it actually have a "telephone" keypad to dial fax numbers?

Managed to find a User Guide for this printer. click here Faxing is done by sending the document to the PC and transmitting it from the PC. This means that the computer must have a dialup "faxmodem" installed and connected to the phone line. Fax is *NOT* sent via an internet connection, it is a dialled phone call, so a broadband modem won't work.

keep getting message "cannot communicate with pcfax modum" ???

To use Fax with this printer, your PC *MUST HAVE* a dialup modem installed. This is separate from your internet connection and not the same as the ADSL Modem used for broadband internet access.

To see if you have a suitable modem installed, go into Device Manager ("Start > Run", type DEVMGMT.MSC and click OK) and see if there is a Modem, as shown in this screenshot click here

My Lex X-74 asked if I wanted to install Fax during the normal install from the CD. I always refused.

Try running again, you may have refused before if the P4330 has same option.
