The 702S is a wireless network adapter which is hosted in the vacant USB interface port of the host computer system. This device provides the computer system with a solution to take advantage of the 802.11B wireless networking protocol. By plugging the 702S into the vacant USB interface port, its presence will be automatically detected by the underlying operating system platform. It will then request the computer user to install the associated software driver for the device. This is done in order to extract to the host computer system the necessary information layout file which will provide the operating system with the details on the type, manufacturer, and model of the attached hardware. The installation process will also extract a configuration utility which provides the user interface that will allow the modification of the default settings of the 702S device.
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 deployment of the 702S network hardware in the host computer system will allow the logging into any network system or Internet connection that is not secured. For secured systems however, the 702S would require the necessary login credentials to take advantage of its wireless networking functionality. The driver for the 702S hardware also supports the implementation of 64- and 128-bit data encryption using WEP technology. This means that data exchange using the 702S can be properly secured by the computer user to prevent unauthorized access to the connection. The driver for the 702S also interacts with various communication applications and Web browser applications installed in the host machine. This is how these software programs make use of the communication functionality of the 702S. By communicating with the driver these applications can control how networks and Internet connections are accessed. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and 702S errors before installing any driver updates.
