The Brother DCP-117C USB Printer is a multifunctional printer which makes use of the Universal Serial Bus interface port in order to establish a communication link with the host computer system. The device driver is partly responsible for establishing the communication infrastructure which allows the supported hardware component to communicate not only with the host operating system platform but also with the other installed software applications. The device driver provides the underlying operating system with the necessary details to correctly identify its make, manufacturer, and built-in functions. For this specific hardware component it is capable of printing, scanning, and copying files based on the requirements of the computer user. The device driver of the Brother DCP-117C USB Printer supports the communication protocols being implemented by the host operating system platform in order to execute a full duplex link. This two-way communication infrastructure allows the supported hardware component to not only receive commands but also send status alerts and notifications.
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
The device driver helps in activating the correct functionality based on the commands or instructions received from the communication layer. Accordingly the Brother DCP-117C USB Printer will send back a response based on its current status and that of the sent job request. The same device driver is likewise partially responsible for the implementation of a control panel applet. This control panel applet allows the computer user to specify certain printing settings which may replace the default configurations of the supported hardware component. The computer user also has the option of making use of a software interface from within the active program which can override the current printer settings. The settings however revert to their previous values once the software application has been terminated. This gives the computer user the flexibility of making use of specific printing commands on a per program basis. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Brother DCP-117C USB Printer errors before installing any driver updates.
