The 3Com (3C562D-3C563D) EL III LAN+336 Modem PC Card is a combination of a Local Area Network card with Modem functionality built into a single add-on card. In this context it is understood that the device driver for this communication hardware component is intended to provide the necessary support for these two functionalities. Earlier communication networks that used the Internet relied mainly on the use of dial-up networks that required one server to establish the active connection and made it available to other network clients. The implementation of the device driver for the 3Com (3C562D-3C563D) EL III LAN+336 Modem PC Card provided the host computer system with the functionality of connecting to a Local Area Network that already has an established Internet connection or directly connecting via dial-up networking. The device driver allows the operating system to distinguish between the signals that are being sent from the two interface ports of the add-on card.
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
It is possible for the 3Com (3C562D-3C563D) EL III LAN+336 Modem PC Card to be connected to a Local Area Network, a telephone line, or both. Because of this functionality, it is important for the underlying operating system environment as well as communication programs to be able to identify what signal is coming from what port. The device driver supports the type of data exchange implemented by the hardware in terms of sending and receiving information from other network clients or from an online server on the Internet. The SYS, COM, and EXE file components of the device driver allows for the implementation of the support tools that are packaged with the hardware. It also makes it possible to correctly configure and calibrate the 3Com (3C562D-3C563D) EL III LAN+336 Modem PC Card to achieve optimal functionality in every conceivable environment. The device driver also makes it possible to assign the correct IRQ and memory address for the hardware. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and 3Com (3C562D-3C563D) EL III LAN+336 Modem PC Card errors before installing any driver updates.
