External Fax modem ?

fishyx 1,287 159 December 9, 2015 at 05:27 PM
If I pick up a cheap USB external fax modem, can I use it with any hard line I want? I'll be using it with the Windows 8.1 Fax and Scan app that came on my computer.

Any is a lot of stuff but I would guess so. You're not giving us many details here to go off of. You may need a driver.

Say I'm at the Rents house who happen to still have a home phone line, can I just plug the modem into their line and send a fax with my laptop using Windows Fax&Scan?

After the proper drivers are installed probably.
