Basically newer mobile computing systems like laptops are equipped with built-in wireless receivers that allow them to take advantage of wireless access points. For older models and types of these computing products however, the computer user needs to resort to expansion or add-on products to take advantage of newer technologies. This is the case with the Belkin Wireless Pre-N Notebook Network Card and its associated device driver. When properly installed into the host computer system via the PCMCIA slot, it will deliver solutions for accessing wireless network environments. The computer user will be able to successfully log into Wireless Fidelity networks provided that he has proper authorization. Normally hardware components that are inserted into the PCMCIA slot are covered by the Plug and Play functionality of newer operating system environments. This may also mean that the underlying operating system platform may attempt to assign a generic device driver to this hardware component.
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
When using the Belkin Wireless Pre-N Notebook Network Card it is imperative that only the manufacturer provided device driver be used in order to make sure that all built-in feature sets are properly activated. One of the most important features supported by the device driver of this hardware component is the functionality to share Internet connection with other computer systems. The setting up of this feature may require additional hardware components as well as support from the networking protocols of the host operating system platform. By using the appropriate device driver the computer user will also be able to take advantage of the anti-distortion and anti-interference functions of the supported hardware components. These two factors are the most common cause of signal drops and failure in connection attempts. By supporting this built-in feature the computer user is assured of a better chance of implementing a successful connection to the access point.
