I can no longer send a fax from my PC after an OS upgrade?
Posted on 2014-12-19
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
