Default Send and Receive faxes

I would think that it may be the same for XP, but I am not sure where to ask
the question for Windows 7. Could someone please let me know how to send
faxes from my laptop. The laptop is connected by WiFi through a router. I am
not sure how to connect and set up the Windows Fax and scan program. Any
help would be appreciated.

You can *not* send faxes through a wifi connection. In fact, you can't
send them over the Internet using Windows Fax Services, whether it is in
Windows XP or Windows 7. You need plain old telephone service (POTS),
aka an analog telephone line. You also need a fax modem.

If your laptop has a fax modem and you have access to an analog
telephone line, see

You can always use an email to fax service (not free):

that site).
