The 33.6 Modem defines a communication hardware component which can be deployed in a host computer system either as an internal element or as an externally attached device. This particular communication device allows the computer user to make use of conventional telephone line services to implement data transfer operations that can reach a peak speed of 33.6 kilobits per second. The actual transmission speed that can be reached by the communication hardware component would be dependent on the quality of the telephone line as well as the configuration of the host computer system among others. The device driver is responsible for activating the communication and data transmission functionality of the supported hardware component. Majority of these types of communication hardware components are known as Hayes compatible in reference to a communication standard used worldwide. The device driver and its associated hardware component also supports mobile computing as long as there is an available telephone service.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
Using the 33.6 Modem communication device a computer user gains the functionality of sending and receiving electronic mails via the conventional telephone line. The computer system can also log into remote networks and servers like the Internet. The device driver in this context supports the various networking protocols that are being implemented by the underlying operating system environment. Aside from the networking protocols the device driver of the 33.6 Modem also supports the execution of encryption and security algorithms in order to divide the data to be transferred to smaller packets. This is done to make the data transmission faster and also more secure. A reverse algorithm is implemented by the receiving modem allows for the decompression of the data packets and the restoration of the original file. The device driver essentially converts the data packets to their analog form and transform it to its digital format at the receiving end. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and 33.6Modem errors before installing any driver updates.
