Fax service does not recognize modem


I

Inta

Fax service does not list any devices. I have a "3com
Windows Modem PCI ADI", which is working correctly. How
can I get the Fax service to recognize the modem as a fax
device? It was working before I had to reformat,
reinstall Win2k, and updates using "Windows Update".
Thank you

Download updated drivers for your modem. When you reformated, you removed those
drivers and when you reinstalled, older drivers got put back.

Thanks,
Gary
