Hello Scott and everyone :)

I need a recommendation for a good PCI Fax Modem (only used for sending and receiving Faxes) with good software.

I have tried to find a good modem on Google, Amazon etc but it is not normally clear if Fax software is bundled (I'm thinking for convenience best to get Fax software bundled with the hardware)

Does anyone have a good bundle. Or stable hardware / software combo they can recommend?

The Modem will only be used for faxes and is intended to replace an existing desktop fax machine.

The machine in question runs good old XPPOEM32SP3!

Many thanks in advance

David

Windows XP has fax software built in that works well. you can even leave it running and have it print incoming faxes automatically as well as save the fax on the hard drive.

It's in Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs>Add/Remove Windows Components, then check the Fax Services.

I use it with a scanner to send faxes from home.

Thank you very much Mike, it was right under my nose!

So is there a decent industrial grade modem that anyone can recommend?

Thanks again

David

I would say just about any modem will do the job and should last a long time.

Edit: Link fixed.

Mike, I just tried your link and it looks like you have an extra "http://" in there. Here's the same link (minus the extra baggage). :)
