Wireless Local Area Network adapters initially were confined to the PCMCIA architecture. These add-on cards were normally found in mobile computer systems. With the introduction of the Universal Serial Bus and its faster 2.0 version, the wireless Local Area Network adapter has evolved into a hardware component that can be hosted on the faster communication port. The presence of the Accton WN3501D Wireless USB Adapter also allows the implementation of wireless networking for desktop computer systems. Initially when the device is plugged into the Universal Serial Bus it will be detected by the Plug and Play functionality of the operating system. The necessary device drivers must be installed to make the hardware component functional. Once completely installed, it will allow the host computer system to log into any wireless access point within its range. The process of connection is similar to that implemented by wired networks.
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
One of the best advantages presented by wireless adapters is that it extends the scope of the Local Area Network and eliminates costly and limiting Ethernet wiring. The device driver for the Accton WN3501D Wireless USB Adapter allows the deployment of wireless networking even to older computer systems as long as a Universal Serial Bus interface is available. The device driver maintains the backward compatibility of the hardware allowing the use of wireless Local Area Networks on the older machines. The device driver for this network hardware component communicates with the operating system to implement not only networking protocols but also security and encryption algorithms. These properties are essential to maintain data exchange integrity and protection. The Accton WN3501D Wireless USB Adapter also implements a drop down rate in the event that a signal from the access point becomes weak. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Accton WN3501D Wireless USB Adapter errors before installing any driver updates.
