Acer SoftK56 Data Fax PCI Modem (AMI-Ra05P-X) is a modem produced by Conexant Systems Inc. Modems are devices which are used to facilitate communication through computer networks. They are electronic devices which facilitate the change of digital signals within a computer from digital data into specific frequencies which are then transmitted via cable TV lines or telephone lines. On reaching their destination the frequencies are received by the modem and are then demodulated back to digital data. Modems are therefore very useful in networking applications. PCI modems are those that use PCI slots in the computer. They are provided together with an enumerator or a driver which facilitates linkage between old COM ports and the new PCI bus. With this driver, the system is able to recognize the modem as a traditional COM port with an IRQ assignment that is not the standard one.
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
Data modems are those which support data modes and their actions are similar to those of an ordinary modem. Some of the technologies available on a data modem include synchronous as well as asynchronous modes, fast connect, AT command with clock input support of 27 MHz, a parallel interface or a serial UART and a call progress which is fully programmable. There are several data modulations which are supported by data modems. These are V. 92, V.90, V. 34, V. 32. Being a fax modem means that the Acer SoftK56 Data Fax PCI Modem (AMI-Ra05P-X) can transmit as well as receive faxes in pretty much the same manner as a fax machine. Other features of modems may include a flash memory which enables the communications protocol to be easily updated. Also, there are modems which carry out data compression which means that they send data at very fast rates. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Acer SoftK56 Data Fax PCI Modem (AMI-Ra05P-X) errors before installing any driver updates.
