The Brain Boxes PCI V34 Modem is a modulator-demodulator. Modem devices are used to modulate analog carrier signals to digital data. It can also demodulate these carrier signals in order to decode the data transmitted. In this process, a modem device can produce a signal that is easily transmitted as well as decoded in order to copy the original data. Modem devices are typically used for Internet access. Desktop and laptop computer owners who would like to connect to the Internet or to a network of computers require at least a certain modem. Data received or sent by a modem device are measured in bits per second or bps. Once the modem device connects a computer to the Internet, this successful connection can be seen through the flashing lights the device presents to the user. Baud is also another way of measuring data transfer in modems.
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
Nowadays, cable modems, DSL and or ADSL modem devices are more commonly used. These types of modem devices provide faster data transfer rates than the traditional modems. Telecommunication industries require the use of wide band radio modems. These wide band modems can send repeating frames of data at super high data rates using microwave radio links. This high speed is required because big industries rely on faster speeds. Radio networks, however, use only narrow band radio modems. The low data rate of up to 19.2k is sufficient for such use. On the other hand, optical modem devices are used to send out data using optical fibers. Intercontinental data links make use of this type of modem. The optical fibers are usually constructed undersea. Data rates for optical modems are phenomenal. They can reach in excess of a billion (1x109) bits per second.
