The Agere WDM Modem Enumerator implements an operating specific framework that is designed to support the simplification of the installation of device drivers. The Windows Driver Model supports the basic installation processes for newer versions of the Windows Operating System family. The device driver of this supported hardware component is responsible in part for the implementation of the complex communication layer hierarchy based on the operating system specifications. The support architecture commonly covers the operation for the flow of the input and output packets to and from the host computer system. The Windows Driver Model implemented by the device driver of the Agere WDM Modem Enumerator also supports the execution of the Unified Driver Model which allows for the standardized requirements in the design and programming of hardware component support mechanisms. The deployment of this technology however is not backward compatible preventing its usage with older operating system environments.
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
Essentially backward compatibility is not covered by the Windows Driver Model implementation and hence this limitation extends to the device driver of the Agere WDM Modem Enumerator and all hardware components compliant to this standard. As a modem enumerator the device driver of this particular hardware component operates within the context of the intermediate layer of the host operating system platform in conjunction with its kernel mode drivers. What this results in is a better support and access to the various feature sets of the device driver including its sub-classes. Because of the interoperability requirements of the Windows Driver Model it is possible for the device driver of the Agere WDM Modem Enumerator to execute in conjunction with that of other hardware components or software applications within the same computing environment. This allows for better support for communication software applications that are written by third party developers. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Agere WDM Modem Enumerator errors before installing any driver updates.
