I use WinFax on my Acer Aspire T120. Used it since Win 98 days.
Recently something seems amiss.
SOMETIMES when I click send, I can hear it dial out,,,, I can hear my modems 'tone'. I think I can hear the recipients fax machine (phone) ring & the handshake,,, but after a few seconds, just goes dead as if dropping the line.
I was about to grab a cheapy from't net,,,, but I'd like to check this one out first, in case it's o.k. & I get another for no reason (thereby getting the same anomaly).
Any ideas please ?
Some years ago, there used to be a 'Test' number for fax machines to try,,,,,,, anyone know if it (or any) are still around ?
Cheers folks, W.CHIP: Looks like a good thing,,,,, not sure if I want to pay for such a program yet though - but thanks - have saved the link. STUARTLI: Diagnostics say "Working o.k",,,, and indeed it has done a couple of times. Network Connections: Properties dosn't 'highlight',,,,, as it's disconnected by default until in use. -------::-------
I've used the program & modem for years and havn't changed any settings.
If there is a problem - it's intermittent,,, as I say I used it twice yesterday.
I think for the moment, will just have to keep an eye on it and expect it to go at some point.
I know that modems are pretty indistructable - The only time that I've had to replace one, was when it was fried by lightening,,,,
