This driver supports the following devices: Cirrus 33600 bps Modem Internal (CL-MD3450) Modem, Cirrus 33600 bps Modem PCMCIA (CL-MD3451) Modem, CIRRUS V34 External Modem, Cirrus 33600 bps Modem External (CL-MD3450) Modem, Cirrus 56K bps Modem Internal (CL-MD5650) Modem, Cirrus 56K bps Modem PCMCIA (CL-MD5651) Modem, CIRRUS 56K External Modem, Cirrus 56K bps Modem External (CL-MD5650) Modem, Ambient 56K External MODEM, and the Ambient 56K bps External (MD5660) Modem. The constant increase in use of the Internet has also directly influenced the demand for faster access, yet the scarcity of a consistent standard of transmission by ISPs and modem developers has slowed the migration of technology. Cirrus Logic supports the 56K standard, which allows users to access the Internet through their existing ISPs, even if the provider operates with V.90 or x2 technology. Cirrus Logic is a company that develops linear circuits and chip solutions utilizing mixed-signal system levels.
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
56K technology denotes only the rates of server download. It needs server sites to use compatible modems. Ideally, V.90 products can download up to speeds of 56Kbps, although FCC power output restrictions limit existing download speeds to 53Kbps only. Many factors can influence download rates, such as line conditions, user volume, and other criteria. Uploads, on the other hand, may be transmitted at a maximum of 31.2 Kbps. The phone line used also needs to be compatible with the technology of 56K. The V.90 modem technology group was founded to help in the promotion of the universal industry testing of products which support the said technology. Another one of its aims is to support interoperability promised by the V.90 standard. The group's members are Cirrus Logic, founding company Hayes Microcomputer Products, Cisco Systems, Bay Networks, Ascend Communications, and General DataComm.
