Windows device driver information for AST 2400-9600 Data Fax Voice Modem

The 2400-9600 Data Fax Modem is a type of modem intended for communication operations within a mobile computing setting. AST 2400-9600 boasts of high bps levels which are paired off with a modem advisor. This advisor allows the user to have trouble-free access without the need for any technical or complex AT commands. Another great function is its ease of use. This modem has a plug and play function in the personal computer’s PCMCIA slot. The device can also be used without necessarily rebooting or restarting it in order to apply the settings. Being one the fastest modems in the market nowadays, reports say that it can reach throughputs of 115 bits per second. This is even without the on-board compression software. It also features 16550 UART along with a built in RTS flow control and double sixteen byte buffers. The package comes with Delrina’s WinComm and WinFax LITE. WinFax LITE permits the user in functionalities such as receiving and sending faxes in the background, automatic fax delivery, fax broadcasting and a fax mailbox. Modems like the AST 2400-9600 showcase a modulator and demodulator but functioning more as a “modem.” This is a device that initially modulates an analog carrier signal in order to program digital information. It also demodulates a carrier signal to decode the transmitted information. This is done in order to produce a signal that can be easily sent and decoded so as to replicate the original data. It mostly uses analog signals from driven diodes onto a radio.

Outdated Drivers?

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

Common usage of this device can be accomplished by connecting a personal computer or laptop to the Internet. The amount of data in the modem is measured through bits per second or bps. This becomes evident once there is successful connection of the computer or laptop to the Internet. Another way to measure this is through Baud which counts the number of times that the modem changes its signal state per second. Radio networks, on the other hand, uses narrow band radio modems. This is mostly used for low data rates of up to 19.2k. A newer type of modem, known as the optical modem, can send out data over optical fibers. This can be seen through most intercontinental data links. Most of their constructions use optical modems transmitting over undersea optical fibers. Data rates for optical modems are counted in excess of a billion bits per second. Any known data fax modem is now regarded as a very functional machine that can remunerate security and reliability to customers. It uses the telephone line technology while pairing up with up-to-date digital enhancements. It is also very simple and easy to understand since the transmission of information is almost instantaneous. The sending of data fax modem can call a phone number and transmit white noise audio signal thru the telephone line or Internet towards the receiving data fax modem while waiting for a confirmation of reception. Fresh, competent and much faster modems are also being invented nowadays. These are known as cable modems, DSL or ADSL modems. In big industries, particularly in telecommunications), they use wide band radio modems. These wide band modems send-out repeating frames of data at very high data rates over microwave radio links. Reports also say that a number of microwave modems can only send more than a hundred million bits per second. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and AST 2400-9600 Data Fax Voice Modem errors before installing any driver updates.
