Re: [hylafax-users] modem suggestion

Check with the folks at ifax.com. They have some recomendations on modems that work well with HylaFax.
My own experience is similar to yours. We used a USR internal modem because it worked doing everything else. But faxing, especially receiving faxes is another issue all together. What we found was that a modem can be broken but still work fine for everything but receiving faxes. I had to give up on buying a new modem in the $200 price range. The accountants said why spend $200 on something only a few of us were familiar with when they can spend $70 on a new, complete fax machine that even the dumbest employee can use. We eventually gave up and use our Hylafax system for sending only.

The only problem is that I don't really know which modem to buy (I don't
want to buy something that will give problems again). This is why I am
asking ;-)
Any advice about a good modem that has never given problems with
