I'm shopping for a new computer - looking at bargains.
For years I've had a free subscription to Netzero to use just when the
internet service is down. Now I find that no computers I review come
with modems, nor do there appear to be any add-ons. What are others
doing for this or for fax?

Agreed, the courier i have owned since 1996 still works for the occasional fax
and is still covered under warranty.

They make USB modems. These have an RJ-11 on one end, and
a short length of USB cord on the other end.

Always read the review section of advertisements like that, to
see how good the drivers are. Some cheap electronics, have a
CD stuffed in the package, that has hardly anything to do with
the product. So you want some comments that the driver package
was good. If a web site is mentioned, as a source of better
drivers, make sure you have the driver installer file in hand,
before ordering the modem. Finding drivers for modems, isn't
always the easiest thing to do.
