Vista VOIP & Faxing

  john93726 06:48 18 Mar 2007

Does anyone know of a good Dlink or generic driver available to be able to use a Dlink 50U VOIP telephone adapter with Vista?
Anyone have any luck finding a fax program that will work with Vista Home Premium?

You may need to use a third party application such as:

as you can't fax with Vista from Home Premium down or, in fact, using broadband (fax/data dialup modem required).

I do have an analogue dial-up modem with fax capabilities but I'm having trouble finding a program like WinFax (which works fine with older versions of Windows) that works with Vista. The older fax programs use a kernel mode printer driver and these aren't supported under Vista.

Thank you for the link but unfortunately I am in Canada and the service in your link is in the U.K.

If you do a Google for such services I'm sure you'll find one based in Canada.

I don't fax very often. Most of these services have a monthly fee. It would be much less expensive in the long run to buy a fax program that works with Vista if one exists.
