    modem & lan

    i was wondering ...

    can one send faxe with the cable modem adsl that is already connected to the pc?
    fax windows always asks to install a traditional modem so how can one divert it to the cable modem?

    is there a bright guy in the pack?
    thanks,
    jan

    No you can't do this. The cable modem is connected only to the internet, not to your phone service. Even an ADSL modem (which shares the telephone line with the analogue telephone service) is not capable of this. There are two solutions:
    1) Install a fax modem and hook up to your telephone line
    2) Subscribe to an internet based fax service. If you Google on "internet fax", you will find many of these services.
