I have a Time Warner modem for internet, phone, and cable tv. Can I use the cable modem for sending and receiving faxes? Have Windows7 with Windows Fax and Scan. Also have a 3/1 printer, copier, and scanner.
No you cannot. You need a dial up modem and a telephone line. Dial up modems are fairly cheap so you could buy and install one. You may also need faxing software such as Winfax. MS Office I think also has the capability to send faxes through a dial up mode so maybe you would not need additional software if you already have MS Office (Outlook)
Actually you should be able to use the phone for fax. It would have to have to be a normal phone type not a usb phone. Simply connect the fax to the place the phone connects to with a two into one rj adapter.
Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
If you have a "phone line" from your cable provider, you can plug your fax machine directly into its RJ11 jack. If you want to share that one line with a fax and a phone you can get The Stick which will automatically send incoming faxes to the fax machine.
In addition, many companies provide services that convert fax machine signals into IP and connect to any fax machine in the world over the Internet like HostMyCalls Hosted PBX Service.
