Sending/recieving Fax doc's via my computer ......

by lylesg / December 13, 2006 3:45 AM PST

using my Fast Access DSL connection(Bellsouth). Bellsouth says it can be done using my external dsl modem. However, while enabling my Window's "Fax Console" program from add/remove, the windows software only recognizes my dial up modem inside my computer, but I do not use dialup now, I use my external dsl modem. Is there a way to get my windows fax software to recognize my dsl modem? The windows fax software defaults to my internal dialup modem and I do not get the option to choose the dsl modem. Bellsouth is absolutely no help on this issue.

The Top Three
by metrofax / November 30, 2008 9:23 AM PST

The top 3 ranking sites are:

Fax Zero - they offer free faxing but they include an ad on the coverpage. Their paid service seems a bit steep unless you're only doing one or two faxes/mth. - they review a number of internet fax services.

Metro Fax - an Internet fax company charging a monthly fee. If you send more than 7 faxes per month they would be cheaper than Fax Zero.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
