The simple answer is that you can't use fax wizard to send faxes via broadband. Fax is analogue, broadband uses digital technology. You will need to retain your dial up modem for fax transmissio, There is software available to sent faxes via the web but I understand this can be a costly option as it is usually by subscription.

hi yes I have a modem in the PC which connects to the phone line. I think the pc came with a built in one

Nomally the modem comes with fax software or you find someother fax software and use that,then it's just like making a fone call, you send fax via the modem and recieve via modem

Sorry for being a pain.
Ive looked at the down loads you said and its a nightmare.
Do I down load any of these and when I've done that can I use the faxing wizard like normal?
I'm not so advanced as you guys.
But please keep trying with me.
