Hi there,

This may not be the right place to ask this question but all my other problems have been solved by using your excellent site.

My hard drive has been trashed and is away to see what can be retrieved from it and I have had to start from scratch reloading all my software etc. This is no problem (at least not yet!)

I use my old modem to send and receive faxes but don't seem to be able to find the fax software I was using.

I have checked the net and it all seems to be new efax stuff. The programme I am looking for must be at least five years old - could it have been an old copy of winfax?

I didn't buy it - it must have come free either as part of windows or perhaps the modem.

Can anybody either enlighten me on the original or recommend something similar. I don't use it a lot so would really like freeware.

Hi John.

You could try going to your Control Panel. There is a Fax Wizard available under Printers and Faxes.

Let us know how you get on. Good luck.

Cheers

pick up the modem, turn it over, depending on the age, there might be some numbers, hopefully a sn number(serial number) put that number in your next google search, it might get you the driver.

honestly, with the price of broadband going down by the month a modem connection does seem very slow and old these days. There are no free modems, but they normally give you the broadband modem when you subcribe it it.
everyday is a gift

Thanks,

went there and found it with no problem. Probably saved me hours looking.

Many thanks for a quick and helpful reply.

How do we now close this topic?


John

Thanks Fleaman,

I have broadband and now only use my old modem for the fax.

I have several clients who still only have fax machines (no internet and some even no computer) and this is the best way I know to send info. I can either scan docs with my HP1100a and send direct or fax directly from word, excel and SAGE.

If you know of a better, or more modern and efficient way please let me know and I will look into it.

Thanks for your reply,

John
