A modem is a communication device that connects to a host computer system to allow it to send and receive data as well as to log onto remote computer systems and the Internet. The basic function of the modem is to transmit the data across the conventional telephone line up to speeds that can be supported by the hardware component. The realistic speed that can be attained however would depend on a number of factors one of which is the line connection quality. In older operating system environments, this particular type of device would be useless without its corresponding device driver. However, in newer operating system platforms the 3X 14.4 Data Fax Modem Voice may be covered by the generic device drivers built into the system. These generic device drivers may be able to successfully activate the data transmission feature of the supported hardware component.
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
The 3X 14.4 Data Fax Modem Voice requires the installation of the manufacturer provided device driver primarily because its functionality is not limited only to data transfer. With the proper device driver this hardware component can transform the host computer system into a fully functional fax messaging center. This means that the computer system can be used to send and receive fax messages. A corresponding software application may be required to implement this scenario. What the device driver does is that helps to distinguish between data and fax transmission signals and activates the proper function accordingly. The device driver also allows a computer user to use a word processing document and instead of printing the file it can be sent out immediately as a fax message. Received fax messages are normally stored in the local hard drive. The device driver also activates the voice feature which can allow the computer user to use the machine as a conventional telephone unit with speakerphone functionality.
