This hardware component is classified as a type of communication device that allows the host computer system to log into high speed data networks. It plugs into a vacant PCI slot on the computer motherboard and requires the installation of a corresponding device driver to establish a link with the underlying operating system environment. Much like any other type of device driver, that of the BeWAN ADSL PCI provides the necessary details needed to make it both operational and functional based on the design of its manufacturer. To log into high speed data networks the computer user may need to subscribe to an Internet Service Provider. This communication device usually works in conjunction with a telephone service that is capable of delivering voice and data carrier frequencies simultaneously. What this means is that both data and voice travel using a single transmission line and part of the job of this hardware component is to distinguish between the two frequencies.
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
This communication hardware component was designed to support Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line connections which is a type of broadband communication technology. By supporting this type of technology the BeWAN ADSL PCI allows for the transmission of more data across network lines using copper telephone lines. Normally the deployment of this hardware component and its corresponding device driver is accompanied by a microfilter element. The microfilter is partly responsible from preventing the signals from getting mixed up or creating interference. The BeWAN ADSL PCI in some points is slightly different from a conventional modem. Aside from the speed of connection it can attain, it also allows the computer user free access to the voice functionality of the telephone line without severely degrading the Internet connection. It also requires a certain distance from the central office of the telecommunications provider to effectively implement ADSL service. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and BeWAN ADSL PCI errors before installing any driver updates.
