Greetings to all...
I have Windows XP Pro and having problems trying to send a fax via XP Fax program. I have configured all the settings as outlined. My internal modem is Agere Win Modem, use to be Lucent Win Modem until I updated the drivers then it changed to Agere. I run a DSL Modem with a router. I have a regular phone line attached to the main phone jack into the computer. I understand that I can not use the DSL for faxing. I also have a DSL filter on the regular phone line to the computer.
When I try to send a fax, it shows it's dialing the number but then comes up stating "No dial tone. The phone is in use or not connected"...
My question is, how do I use this Fax Program and do I need to install a regular FAX Modem?
Any and all help is appreciated.

hello aboogger;

in order to make your software work in XP, you have to have a fax modem. Not too long ago I purchased a robotic faxmodem and have not had any problems .

Another thought would be to Google your question for a more complete answer.

I hope this helps;

Thanks CLKP....I thought maybe I would have to get a regular fax modem...I've tried typing in all kinds of info into google but couldn't really find an answer...I'll get a fax modem and see if that takes care of the problem...
