I can no longer send a fax from my PC after an OS upgrade?

Greetings mates,

I have an OLD Dell OptiPlex g260 (yea, I am too emotionally attached to it) and when it had windows XP, I was able to send fax using the modem on the PC.

Since Microsoft abandoned support for XP earlier this year, I upgraded to Windows 7.

Since then, I am able to send fax anymore.

I do have router from my ISP but still not able to configure it to send fax.

I am planning to purchase a modem that is compatible with Windows 7 today but I wanted to see if I can get some pointers from you experts before making the purchase.


1, Is there any link/article to walks me through configuring the router to allow me to continue to use it to send fax?

2, If no, is the decision to purchase a modem a good idea?

In other words, will that work?

I did a lot of browsing, tried pretty much everything I googled up but no cigar.

Any ideas is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Yea, that requires that I pay money if I fax more than 10 pages.

That's a NO NO
