Beats me. I'd just plug it all in and see what works. I'm glad we've moved away from dip switches and handshaking modem parity. All that 312K baud stuff was dizzying...<br><br><br><br><br>Coming to terms with the notion that life is dynamic.

I may choose to wire anyway, since part of the appeal of N is reduced interference from neighbors. It's possible I'll shut down G entirely. I'll experiment.<br><br>Re faxing, I always fax from OS X--I don't have a physical fax machine. My main machine (iMac) has no modem and isn't near a phone jack anyway, so here's what I do:<br><br>* My old PBG4, accessible on my home LAN, sits plugged into the phone jack with Fax Sharing turned on (a great OS X feature that works just like Printer Sharing).<br><br>* When I want to fax from my iMac, I can: the fax goes (wirelessly) to the PB which does the dialing and sending. All nice and automatic.<br><br>But I'm wondering if I can retire that PB and do the same thing with an AirPort base station + USB modem. I know the base station supports printer sharing, but does it support faxmodem sharing? Probably not--sounds obscure to me--but it would be neat.<br><br>If not, I'll just use my new Air to do faxing. Unlike my iMac, it can easily be carried to a phone jack, and then my iMac can fax through it the same way I fax through my PBG4.<br><br>I don't fax often anyway--I'm just curious.<br><br>nagr[color:red]o</font color=red>mme<br><br>I require stroyent!<br>TeamMacOSX.com | MacClan.net
Can't see why not. I have a client running a similar bridged network through a LinkSys which is connected to their satellite modem - HP printer attached to the AEBS is available to all.<br><br>- alec -
I was going to say what Alec said. Keep it simple.<br><br>I doubt the faxing through the Airport would work but try it and let us know.<br><br>------> JD's Trivia game<br><br>------> MCF-MM Trivia game
