    Seen on another NG
    Ignoring the fact that this is probably just an SMTP issue for the email.

    Is there any truth in the burn out modem point, if so which modem, some how
    I doubt it as there would be fused fax machines around the UK otherwise.

    My personal experience is false. My ADSL enabled line is only used for ADSL
    and making data calls using my laptop's internal modem when the ADSL is (not
    infrequently) down.

    Claranet or some other ? Sorry, have you had long running probs with
    a long distance to exchange or similar ? I can think of only one of
    my clients (happily using Zen) who has had lots of disconnections,
    and he's at the end of the village with a rotten line, but he himself
    is apparently unaware of the disconnections, whereas the router stats
    showed it as being very dropout prone. Peter M.

    Agree, and add that a dial up modem on an ADSL enabled line will get low
    connection speeds.

    Low speeds on ADSL or Dialup?

    Does that mean a fax machine will slow things up on ADSL?

    Fax Machine or Faxmodem on PC that is.

    Or does the Modem Speed make a difference.

    Doe the modem have to be live or just connected/wired up?

    I have not seen this talked about.

  8. my analogue modem will fax happily and make data calls at 44k over an
    active ADSL enabled line.

    Not saying it wont work but earlier posters suggest issues arise, and I am
    trying to verify.

    You may experience slower speeds with the analogue modem, but the DSL part
    should be unaffected.

  11. only way to prove it is to do it. Odd bits of kit may be affected, but
    in geenral there should be no problem.

    You may experience higher or lower dial up speeds than previously on an ADSL
    enabled line. This won't affect ADSL speeds.

    I'll take that as the technical answer!
