By steve.brockman ·
Does a wireless USB broadband require a telephone number and, if so, can that same phone number be used to run E-Fax on the laptop?

what's a wireless usb broadband?

You mean a DSL modem?

E-Fax just uses any standard broadband connection type, so I'm guessing the answer is yes.

As long as you have a router you should be all set. The router hooks up to a phone jack but the line doesn't have to be turned on (have a phone number). You do however need an internet provider so that the router has a signal.

Cellular Broadband and Faxing

I presume that you are talking about wireless broadband as provided by many cell phone service providers that uses a USB transceiver to connect to the cell phone providers wireless broadband network.

Well, you do and don't have a cell phone number that correlates to the broadband service. There is an identification number assigned to your USB transceiver. However, it is not a number you can provide to someone to dial and use your laptop as a FAX machine.

With the eFAX service, you need to use one of their network numbers.
