I don't think so, but you can subscribe to one of the "internet based"  fax/messaging services such as
j2.com.

Of cause you'll have to pay for sending faxes  :-(

Why switch?  I would assume you could have both modems installed in your system... all you need is a secondary wall jack to connect the phone-modem to.  don't even need a second phone line... just replace your single-jack plate with a dual-jack plate, run a few short jumper wires & you should be ok.

configure the fax to use the phone-modem & your net connection to use the dsl modem.


hope this helps
