This Modem (HDAudio SoftV92 Data fax modem with SmartCP) came with my PC and have set it up to send & receive faxes after my stand alone machine broke down. It is good enough when it works but most, if not all, times it fails to receive a fax until I close down all progams I am working on and reboot the PC. As I am not a technical person, it would be really helpful if someone can explain why this could happen and whether it is possible to 'fix' it? I run CCTV cameras off this PC also so can there be a conflict ? I have Norton installed also.

You probably need to hook up to a landline telephone line, too. Or, you can use an "e-fax" service that lets you send faxes via internet. Basically, they would send your fax as middleman to the recipient. Windows Vista except Business version) does not have inherent fax support like Windows XP and Windows 7 Professional. And programs such as WinFax did not upgrade to Vista and 7. But, your fax modem should have come with some faxing software.
You put in modem card and then run telephone line to back. You can usually run a line to a telephone from the 2nd connection on the back with the telephone symbol below it.
If the modem is working, that is all that matters. A different driver is not going to change anything. The line sync speed that you are talking about is not a big deal. It is going to vary nearly everytime you connect, no matter what, and is not an accurate indication of actual download speeds.
Are you using DSL connection or Dial-up?
What OS are you using?
The fax line and voice line are using the same frequency so you should be able to fax directly from your pc fax modem when using Dial up connection but in DSL the data and voice are using different frequency. So in normal situations you wont be able to fax using DSL modem unless you use a separate fax machine.
However, if specified during the set-up of the DSL line, the signal can be separated so that some of the bandwidth is used to transmit an analog signal (for voice and fax) while the remaining bandwidth is used to transmit digital data. This allows for the use of the telephone or fax, and computer on the same line and at the same time. When inquiring about DSL with the service provider, specify the desire to use the phone line for voice or fax calls while connected through the computer to the Internet.
Reference the following setup options for using a DSL line with HP all-in-one or fax products.
You have to add Microsoft Fax to your printers. You add this from add/remove Programs/Windows Components in XP, Vista should be similar. Once it's install just print your document to the Fax printer as you would to your regular printer. You will then be presented with a Wizard walking you through your Fax preferences and cover page settings.
a fax from your computer requires a fax modem and that your operating
system be configured to allow you to send and receive faxes.

You cannot send a fax on a broadband connection, they should have given you a splitter, if not get one, the splitter is a small box like thing, it has two telephone sockets on one side and one socket on the other, the telephone line from the wall is connected on one side, on the other side you have to connect your adsl modem in one and your telephone in another socket, Usually the sockets have descriptions on them specifing which decive should be connected to the socket.
Now you should have a dial up modem(56Kbps internal or external modem) connect this modem to the socket which specifies, Telephone. Configure the modem. configure yor fax settings to use this modem. Now you can send your faxes.
If your ISP does not support dial-up then you cannot use it to send faxes.
