802.11b Wireless LAN PC Card caters WEP, WPA and or WPA2- PSK, TKIP and AES. With all of these supports, users can now be assured that the same securities like that of the wired LAN devices. Accton 802.11b Wireless LAN PC Card features include a cradle AP, IEEE 802.11b/g support, an embedded antenna, 2.5dBi VoIP Service, SIP Server, DSL Modem, Hotspot and Auto-Configuration Server. It is also compatible with 2.4-2.497GHz having data rates of 54, 48, 36, 24, 18, 11, 5.5, 2, 1 Mbps, Wireless, AP, SIP, Wi-Fi, Phone, SIP, WiFi Phone, Authentication Server and SIP Wifi. Like many wireless devices, this product is no different for it gives QoS mechanism to deliver the real time application packet with higher priority. It is also designed to work with different types of service (TOS) field of the IP frame to appoint the priority for all operating IP frames. This may be known to other names such as network adapter, network interface controller, network interface card and LAN adapter. This is another computer hardware invented to enable computers to communicate over a computer network. As such, network connection can either be using cables or wireless connection. The device is considered to be an OSI layer one or a physical layer as well as layer 2 or data link layer device. Its core function is providing physical access to a networking medium as well as a low level addressing system through the use of MAC addresses. Another important factor to think of is the Ethernet as this makes all network communications possible.
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
Ethernet has been used since the mid-1990s. It is known that the Ethernet network card contains an exclusive forty-eight bit serial number known as a MAC address. Principally, this is saved in ROM that is carried onto the card. Unique MAC addresses are very important as it is a requirement for every computer that operates on an Ethernet network. Addresses are bought separately in the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. They are also the ones in charge of assigning address to each card at the time of the production. Moreover, network cards are also used to be expansion cards that are attached into a computer bus. Ethernet standard configurations provide inexpensive costings. This has become the standard trend among most new computers that have built-in network interface in the motherboard. Such motherboards have any of the two main functionalities such as Ethernet capabilities that are built-in the motherboard chipset or solely Ethernet chip linked through the PCI bus. Multiple interfaces are only required to add additional and separate network cards. The card applies the electronic circuitry which is a significant factor in communicating to other networks. Network protocol stack comes after a circuitry is identified, which in turn allows communication among small groups of computers on the same LAN and or huge network communications through routable protocols. An example of this is the USB which is mostly used for transmitting any data and for connecting a device to a computer. A lot of the manufacturers take advantage of this technology. Most of which vary from voice telephony, audio playback, and recording. The aforementioned variations can take advantage of the USB. This in turn makes the USB gain control and has the ability to spread digital audio. The Universal Serial Bus is a mechanism that generates communication between devices and a specific host controller. Host controllers usually refer to personal computer or a laptop. This has dramatically changed and replaced the usual devices intended to replace many types of serial and parallel ports. USB functions as a connection to other computer devices. These peripherals are known as mouse, keyboards, digital cameras, printers, personal media players, flash drives, and external hard drives. Nowadays, USB has become a commonly used form of connecting devices. May it be for linking or connecting or charging a specific mobile phone and or as pocket personal computers. Most portable media devices follow to synchronizing data which is done so by USB.
