Fax and ADSL
"How can I send a fax by ADSL" is a frequently asked question.
The simple answer is that it is not possible.

The reason is that an ADSL connection may share the standard telephone wiring, however, ADSL itself is only connected to the Internet. Since a Diva ADSL modem only accesses the ADSL connection, it too is only connected to the Internet.

However, one of the main advantages about ADSL is that it runs in parallel with the ordinary analogue telephone service, and a conventional fax modem connected to the telephone port on the splitter will still work.

Alternatively, use can be made of the various Internet-based fax-sending services available on the web. (Try searching for something like "internet fax service" using your favourite search engine on the web).

Thank you for taking the time to my question.

Currently, I have a telephone line and an ADSL line, that runs parallel, with a splinter connected.

Using the same telephone line, if there is an incoming fax, I would like to use the notebook to receive the fax, is there any recommended software available with Microsoft ME? or better, is there any free fax software?

may thanks if u can assist
