This network hardware component supports the carrying of data traffic at the nominal rate of approximately 100 megabits per second. This hardware component is based on the technology that was introduced into the computer industry in 1995. It remained for a time as the fastest way of moving data across network environments until it was surpassed by the Gigabit Ethernet technology. As a network component, the device driver for the Accton EN1207-TX PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter is involved in the two logical divisions of the fast Ethernet adapter, the Media Access Controller and the Physical Layer Interface. The device driver supports the data signaling rate implemented by network environments. It also observes the common network protocols that are put in place by the operating system and appropriate network software application. Essentially the maximum transmission rate is not achieved because of the header and trailer bits used for addressing and error detection respectively.
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 Accton EN1207-TX PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter device driver provides the computer user with a way of configuring the hardware. The configuration is normally done via a user interface provided by a network utility. In some instances terminal emulation programs can also be used. These applications communicate with the device driver to correctly send signals to the hardware and check on its status. The device driver allows for the deployment of the Accton EN1207-TX PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter in older computer systems. The role of the hardware driver in this context is to make sure that there will be no conflict between the network device and older networking protocols. The operating system makes use of the device driver to gather enough information so that correct system resource allocation and addressing can be done. This hardware component makes use of the Network Driver Interface Specification that is normally associated with Network Interface Cards. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Accton EN1207-TX PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter errors before installing any driver updates.
