Hi Elaine I send and revive several Fax's a day. I also have a cable modem that is hooked to a network. I use the cable to accesses the internet. I can be on line and get a fax or send a fax. I prefer lynksys routers, that are cable ready. They are a very good firewall as well. Steve Moreno Valley, Ca PS You can also send and receive fax's by email. Efax I believe it is called. The draw back is it that both computers must have the program on it.
