This is doubtless a dumb question but I wondered if my Home Hub 5 doubled as a modem enabling me to use the Fax and Scan function in Windows 8.1? If not, what do I need to get the fax up and running. Advice would be appreciated.
It may be that your computer has the ability to work as a fax. If it does there will be a socket for you to connect your computer to your phone socket using a normal phone extension cable. If it does not have that you will probably need a scanner with fax capabilities. The "function" on Windows 8.1 will only be software that you can use to operate the scanner/fax.
Tjhanks for the reply. No, there isn't a telephone socket on the PC or my scanner. I half guessed that this was the problem since some years ago I did have a scanner with a socket so could then use the fax. Thanks for the reply, saves me wondering.
