Fax sending with router

Hi all
i want to be able to send a few faxes from within windows xp
with some preferably free or cheap software,
it would be easy with an ever so slow dial up modem there
are loads of utilities but im running a router and have scoured the internet
in search of anything suitable with no luck, as ill only be sending 1 or 2 a week i dont want to spend loads,
can any of you helpful people point me in the right direction

Fax sending with router

Routers can't send faxes, or at least none on the current market can.

Both ADSL and Dialup/ISDN routers are designed to handle network traffic and use an external link when needed for data.

They don't accept faxes of any medium and dial to transmit.

There are two options here.

1: Use you standard dialup modem to send the faxes. Bar far the easiest

2: Use a e-mail to fax supplier

Thanks Philip,
i will have to settle for the web based option
i think it will probably be easier in the longrun than
confusing the ever so stable windows with a modem,
cheers
