ASUS 802.11b Wireless LAN Card boozes of specifications including an internal, wireless interface such as a PC Card with a maximum WLAN speed of 54.0 Mbit. Since it is wireless, the range through which it can carry o out signals can reach up to 40.0 meters for indoors while for outdoors, it can reach at a high of 330.0 meters. The device also uses an encryption algorithm in a hundred and twenty eight bit WEP or sixty four bit WEP as well as WPA. ASUS 802.11b is a network interface card. It is also called other names such as network adapters, network interface controllers, network interface cards and LAN adapters. There is another computer hardware invented that helps computers communicate over a computer network. These network connections can either use cables or go wireless. The device is considered as an OSI layer one and a physical layer as well as a layer 2 or data link layer device. Its core function is to provide physical access to a networking medium as well as for a low level addressing system. This is through the use of MAC addresses. Another important factor is the Ethernet. This can make all network communications possible. Ethernet has been around since the mid-1990s. Ethernet network cards contain an exclusive forty-eight bit serial number known as a MAC address. Principally, this is saved in ROM and carried on the card. Unique MAC addresses are very important as it is a requirement for every computer that operates on an Ethernet network.
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
Addresses are bought separately at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. They are also the ones in charge of assigning address to every card at the time of production. Moreover, network cards are also regarded expansion cards that are attached into a computer bus. Ethernet standard configurations provide an inexpensive cost. This has become the standard amongst most new computers that feature a network interface built into the motherboard. Such motherboards have any of the two main functionalities: Ethernet capabilities built-in the motherboard chipset or solely Ethernet chip linked through the PCI bus. Multiple interfaces only require additional and separate network cards. The card makes use of electronic circuitry applications which are needed for communication purposes. Network protocol stacks come after a circuitry is identified which allows communication amongst small groups of computers on the same LAN or huge network communications through routable protocols. One good example for the latter is the IP. ASUS is regarded as this industry’s pioneer, especially since it continuously searches, innovates and commits to innovation as well as quality. This company has won awards from various media, technological and governmental industries. To date, ASUS received more than three thousand fifty-six awards which enabled the company’s income to grow and reach up to 8.1 billion U.S. dollars. This made it the highest achiever of sales in the IT Hardware Category of the annual league table of Taiwan’s Top 10 Global Brands. The company also ranks with a brand value of 1.324 billion U.S. dollars. Being on the top of this industry, ASUS vouches for people’s requirements for today's digital home, digital office and digital person. It values its products and the consumers that use these products, especially the ones who utilize renewable materials like leather and bamboo in notebooks and the ones who incorporate the proprietary power saving “Super Hybrid Engine” technology into their notebooks and motherboards.
