  1. How to connect an internal Fax-Modem to a PC via USB?


    My new pc doesn't have a PCI slot to accommodate my old Fax-Modem. I certainly don't use the modem, but it can be handy to Fax sometimes.
    I thought there might be a way to connect it to my new pc via USB?
    Or any other way for that matter.


    Any info on this will be greatly appreciated.

  2. fax is not working.

    Not enough info.

    Did you fax via an internal Fax/modem?

    Does it appear in Device Manager as part of the configuration?

  3. Fax and Scan version 1511 -- where is Help for this feature?

    Hello Lillevang,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    We understand the inconvenience you have experienced.

    Agreed with you that no Help article tied with the Windows Fax and Scan in Windows 10. Please post your feedback on this using Windows 10 feedback app, which help us to improve your experience.

    If you're planning to send and receive faxes at home, you first need to outfit your PC with a
    fax modem. A fax modem is a relatively inexpensive piece of add-on hardware that allows your computer to communicate with a fax machine over a standard phone line. The devices are sold at major computer stores and come in two varieties: internal
    and external.

    Internal fax modems plug directly into your computer motherboard, similar to the way a video or sound card is plugged in. External fax modems are small devices that connect to the serial or USB ports.

    If you're at work, another option is to see if your employer has a fax server—a dedicated computer equipped with multiple fax modems. Sending a fax using a fax server doesn't require you to add any special hardware to your PC. You just set up
    a connection with the fax server and go.

    Once you've picked up a fax modem or found a fax server, you'll need to do a little setting up. Suggest you to get in touch device Manufacturer for getting help on settings and configuring Fax device with Windows 10.

    I appreciate your cooperation in this regard.

    Keep us posted if you require further assistance.

    How to connect an internal Fax-Modem to a PC via USB?

    You cannot. No one really uses fax services built into laptops, because they are made to be portable. You will find more people using fax services like Myfax.com. Businesses use dedicated Fax servers that send and receive all faxes and utilize a network scanner to copy the document in as a PDF and then send it via email or through SIP.

    I deleted my earlier post. I'm sorry, I failed to see the computer in question was a laptop; I was thinking desktop.

    If you have Windows Fax and Scan located under Windows accessories and you have an empty USB port on your PC I don't see why you couldn't do a fax. There are USB Fax Modems available. I know my old laptop has the necessary items to do a fax.

    The issue is that they do not work with Digital or VoIP phone service.

    POTS is going the way of the Dodo bird. AT&T is already in progress of getting rid of all POTS connections at the house and placing iNID's like Verizon has done for their FiOS, same as Google with Google Fiber. Only thing is that those Telco's that are sticking with Copper to the Premise, it is a Dry loop system.

    How to connect an internal Fax-Modem to a PC via USB?

    Actually, up until a few months ago, I had an internal fax/modem on a W8.1 rig hooked up to my home line which is serviced by an OBi device, which I use with a Google Voice number as my home phone, and the fax worked just fine. I have since changed rigs, and will be attaching a USB fax device to do the same thing. Since OBi use Google Voice+my internet connection, it is "VoIP", so I can confirm that it does work.
