Fax in Xp

Could someone give me an idea how this works in XP Professional ? I can set it up but am unsure if I can use this feature as I have a high speed connection through my telephone line I have an Asus A7N8X-VM motherboard with an AMD 2500 Athalon processor

If you can set it up (as you have said), well what else is there to do but just send a fax!!!!! - be a devil and try, after all what you got to loose! - and if that doesn't work then we have narrowed down the problem.

High speed telephone line = DSL ? You need a dialup modem (voice/data) for Fax. One lead(normal telephone) from spliter to dialup modem, the other (DSL) to DSL modem for Internet/LAN.

Most computers come with a modem. And, most of them are fax modems. Hook your computer to a phone line and send a fax. The fax program that comes with XP is not installed by default. You will to install it through add/remove programs, Windows components then run the fax wizard to set it up.
