Thanks, I have an external Netcomm USB 56K modem. I have had no luckThe printer is immaterial. If you are using 'windows fax and
scan' there is a check box to tick/untick depending on whether
you want printing by default or not. Go to 'tools > fax settings
Is your modem an internal winmodem or a proper external modem? If
the latter you should be able to set the bios to 'wake on lan' so
that if the computer is off and a fax is detected the computer
will turn itself on. Not sure if this works with a winmodem but
finding a better one that will plug into a PCIe slot in the computer.
These are commercial units with all sorts of filtering capabilities,
but they cost the earth moon & stars.
