The odd thing is my fax machine works just fine with Magicjack.  I'll have to look into this ooma.  Anyone else have success using modems with voip?

Fax is a totally different protocol and their codec is designed to support it.
I ended up getting a line with fios that works perfect at any baud rate.

I bought a USB modem several years ago, this model I think http://www.frys.com/...CH:MAIN_RSLT_PGIt ran OK for a couple of years but then went south on me. I'll probably be dropping my land line this year as I get 10 crank calls a day from telemarketers and only 4 calls a month from real humans.<sic>


IMHO: Lots of USB modems for sale at lower price points then the Hiro. Considering the fate of mine, I would give them a try as the expensive Hiro ended up just as dead.

Well, if the above is all correct, I'd get a nice Hayes compatible fast modem and use it on fios.

The proof is in the results :)
