I bought a H-P all in one printer just for that. On my network i can send any document, etc from any computer and have the printer fax it out. I dont even have to have the computers turned on to recieve faxes, the printer works by itself.

any free internet fax service is going to dump a crapload of ads on your faxes--maybe on incoming stuff you don't care, but on ongoing stuff it is going to look unprofessional

Why not buy a $7 modem and just use the Windows fax service that is built in?

seconded....you could even get an external usb modem if you don't feel like opening the case up

if your laptop has a modem built in...then you will see a jack that looks like a phone jack in the back or on the side of the laptop...if you do have such a port...let us know and we can help you setup the faxing services....you do not need a dialup account to use a fax...all you need is a phone line

that's not going to happen...you cannot connect wirelessly from your modem to a telephone line -- at least not with anything I am familar with.

Looks like your back to a fax service

efax is probably the biggest, but the free service is receive only (no send)
