Atheros L1 Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000Base-T Controller is the Ethernet switch ports or adapters. They support three different transfer rates all on the same port. The supported the supported transfer rates are10BASE-T, 100BASE-T and 1000BASE-T (gigabyte Ethernet). They run at 10Mbits/s, 100 Mbit/s, 1000 Mbit/s respectively. The numbers represents the theoretical maximum transmission speed. The general names used for the Ethernet are derived from some aspects of the material media. BASE is used as a short name for baseband; this means no frequency multiplexing (FDM) or any other frequency variable modulation being used. The T represents twisted pair cable, these wires are warped together so as to reduce crosstalk (FEXT and NEXT). When the direct pulsing current goes through the wires, it tends to create an electromagnetic induction effect. In some devices that have several transmission speeds, a letter or digit is used after the letter T like TX.
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
These three standards all use the same connectors. 8 position modular connectors usually used are called RJ45 in the situation of Ethernet over twisted pair. The correct speed is selected by using autonegotiation for setting the speed and use of duplex for best values supported by both devices connected. Incase the autonegotiation fails, a multiple device automatically senses the partners speed, but it will only assume half-duplex. Both standards operate over a distance of up to 100 meters. To following steps should be used to install Atheros L1 Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000Base-T Controller: define your L1 net device model and the operating system to install it in, browse for the Atheros L1 net drivers and select Atheros L1 Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000Base-T Controller and download it. One can also update other related drivers automatically by using RadarSync freeware or the driver detective shareware. After the installation is complete the last step is to reboot the computer. One should always backup the computer drivers that were currently in the computer before updating. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and ATHEROS L1 Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000 errors before installing any driver updates.
