Windows device driver information for COM Port G

The COM Port G falls under the category Network and Modem. On computer and telecommunication devices, a port is generally a specific place to be used for physically connecting to some other device like a socket and plug. A personal computer is typically provided with one or more serial ports and usually one parallel port. Serial ports support sequential and one bit-at-a-time transmission to peripheral devices such as scanners. Parallel ports support multiple-bit-at-a-time transmission to devices such as printers. In programming, a port is a 'logical connection place.' Specifically, it uses the Internet's protocol, TCP/IP. Higher-level applications that use TCP/IP have ports with pre-assigned numbers. Other application processes are given port numbers for each connection. When a server program is started, it is said to bind to its designated port number. If a client program wants to use that server, it also must request to bind to the designated port number.

Outdated Drivers?

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

A computer network allows computers to communicate with other computers. Networks allow computer users to share resources and information. Computer networks can be classified according to the hardware and software technology used. These technologies include Optical fiber, Ethernet, Wireless LAN, HomePNA, Power line communication or G.hn. Ethernet uses physical wiring to connect devices. The COM Port G is a modulator-demodulator, or in short, a modem. It enables computers to transmit data over cable lines or telephone lines. Since computer data is stored in digital format, they cannot be transferred over to other devices on a network using analog signals. They need to be decoded into analog signals and back to digital format. Such is the function of a modem. These types of devices can enable data from a computer to be sent over through telephone or cable lines and allow other devices to receive the original data. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and COM Port G errors before installing any driver updates.
