How do I install my network ready fax machine on to my home computer?


Can I connect a network ready fax machine to my home computer? I have no network, just a NIC card.

First of all you have to make sure that your fax machine is compatible with windows XP and that your computer has a network card installed most new computers do Install the drivers because XP despite the rumors dues not have every driver known to man.

Get yourself a couple of cat five or six net work cables and a small network switch use it to connect the two devices and you should not have any problems.
