The Agere Systems ET-1301 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller is responsible for the deployment of a combined technology based on the IEEE 802.3 Media Access Controller, embedded memory, and the PCI Express bus controller standards. It makes use of a 10/100 Base-T with high quality DSP technology that incorporates mixed mode signalling technology. The result is a fast data transmission operation using a CAT5 UTP cable. The device driver of this hardware component implements various algorithms like automatic correction and detection over crossover cables and echo cancellation among others. The device driver also supports error correction during data transmission and reception despite the increased speed of transfer. The PCI Express bus remains as the main interface for the Agere Systems ET-1301 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller and makes use of the power management features that are supported by its specifications. The device driver also supports the automatic configuration of associated bits of the PCI power management register.
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 device driver of the Agere Systems ET-1301 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller supports the execution of the Advanced Configuration Power Management Interface that is commonly found in newer operating system environments. This feature set is associated with the power management features to allow for a more efficient use of computer system power distribution. In this context even the Message Signalled Interrupt function is likewise supported by the device driver of this hardware component. The installation of the proper device driver makes it possible for the Agere Systems ET-1301 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller to support certain feature sets like the Wake-Up On LAN despite being in power down state. The execution of this function allows the supported hardware component to bring the host computer system into active mode once an activity is detected from the network environment. The device driver also attempts to attain compliance with prevailing operating system protocols like the NDIS5 which covers UDP, IP, and TCP among others. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Agere Systems ET-1301 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller errors before installing any driver updates.
