If you have a splitter on your phone cord, the phone and computer will always work. They are super inexpensive. If you don't have a splitter, then you will have to switch the phone cord back and forth from computer to phone depending on what you want to use. Get a splitter and never think about it again.

Im pretty sure it can. As long as it can dial to the right number and get the handshake tone, it shouldn' matter. May have to dial from the computer to the phone system digitally, and that might be an issue.

Also Clicking on Fax in your windows device and printers, and setting up the fax settings might enable this.

All I had to do was plug the modem into a free USB port and set-up an Internet connection on the computer.You will need your Internet Service Providers (ISP) dial in phone number to set up the Internet connection on your computer.

Plug in the USB cable into the machine. Insert the small driver cd that came with it. Install the drivers.

Just plug the Wintec into an available USB port on your computer, then a phone line cord into the other end, and start up your software that you use to dial-up to the internet.

You wouldn't hook up the router directly to this. You would hook this up to the machine from the phone line. The machine would be hooked up to the router and you would set up your internet connection to be shared that way. The machine would have to be the "middleman" for that to work.
