Wireless Fax Machines

How do wireless fax machines work?

After receiving this question, I looked in the FaxAnswers archives and saw that I’d last addressed wireless fax machines over five years ago. A lot has changed since then.

You no longer need to plug your all-in-one print/scan/fax machine into a phone line to send or receive a fax, because you can simply fax over the internet. Nowadays, pretty much any consumer desktop machine you buy, even those under $100, will be able to connect to your home or office wifi signal so you can fax with just a few clicks. Your computer and fax machine “share” data via the signal and, voila, you’re faxing.

To fax without wires, you can use my site, FaxZero, to send low-cost and free faxes, or check my internet fax guide to find the subscription-type online fax service that’s best for you.
