The CG-WLCB144GNL is a type of wireless network adapter that is capable of supporting 802.11b, g, and n protocols provided that the correct device driver is installed into the host computer system. Normally these types of hardware components are covered by the Plug and Play functionality of newer operating system environments. However, despite being detected rarely does the host operating system platform install a corresponding device driver for this particular hardware component. Probably this is because there are typically wider ranges of applications for wireless networks compared to wired ones or those established by wired modem devices. The device driver of the CG-WLCB144GNL allows the host compute system to take advantage of Wireless Fidelity networks which relatively cover a wider area compared to wired Local Area Networks. The types of protocols and algorithms that are supported by the device driver of this hardware component would depend on what is currently being implemented by the operating system and other devices like wireless routers.
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
For most wireless networks the system administrator would assign a corresponding network key to make sure that only authorized computer users can log into the network. The device driver of the CG-WLCB144GNL in this context is capable of communicating with the security and encryption algorithms used to secure the wireless network. This is important from the point of view of authenticating the credentials of the computer user that attempts to log into the wireless network. There are however a number of Wireless Fidelity networks that are deployed unsecured or open to the public. In these types of open networks the device driver still communicates with the protocols of the host operating system and still complies with the security standards. Actually an open network usually only allows the computer user to take advantage of a shared Internet connection but the ability to access resources in other network clients may still be locked down. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and CG-WLCB144GNL errors before installing any driver updates.
