All you need is a Dial-Up Modem in the computer And Software click here

The Modem as to be connected to the phone side of the filter if you are on BroadBand

It's a Canon Pixma 330. I've connected it to my router but still no joy!

Read what woodchip said again. You need a MODEM. Not a router.

Think I'm beginning to understand. Computer doesn't have a built in modem.

But the Canon has fax. You should connect it to the telephone line not the router. These links may help click here

Now I am getting confused. Woolwell - are you saying that the MX330 has a dial up modem or equivalent. Computer keeps saying that it cannot find a modem

  Woolwell 14:48 10 Nov 09

The Canon MX330 has a built in fax which allows you to send and receive faxes through it. It should have come with a phone connector and a manual with details of how to connect it. You will effectively be using it as a standalone fax unless the software allows you to send.
The Canon support site click here
gives details of how to send a fax from the MX330.

I now have it plugged into the telephone line. Just tried to send a fax to work but it just kept auto redialing. It printed a report though saying the line was busy.

Woolwell - thanks for the info. Just managed to send and receive a fax.
