Compaq SpeedPaq 144-I is a data and fax modem produced by Compaq Computer Corporation. Modems are devices which enable computers to send out data via cable lines or telephone lines. The information stored in the computer is in digital format. The modems convert this information into analog format to enable it to be transmitted over the telephone lines. On reaching the destination, this information is then converted back to digital format so that it can be understood by the receiver. The Compaq SpeedPaq 144-I uses the V.32Bis maximum communication protocol and ISA communication buses. For this modem to function effectively and efficiently, users of this product should always ensure that they are using the latest version of the device driver. Old versions have been known to create conflict and can produce errors in the work of the device. Thus users should update the device driver at least on a monthly basis.
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
Data modems are modems which support data modes and their operations are pretty much the same as those of an ordinary modem. Some of the technologies found on the data modem include synchronous as well as asynchronous modes, fast connect, AT command with clock input support of 27 MHz, a parallel interface or a serial UART and a call progress which is fully programmable. There are several data modulations which are supported by data modems. These are V. 92, V.90, V. 34, V. 32. Being a fax modem means that the Compaq SpeedPaq 144-I can transmit as well as receive faxes in pretty much the same manner as a fax machine. Other features of modems may include a flash memory which enables the communications protocol to be easily updated. Also, there are modems which carry out data compression which means that they send data at very fast rates. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Compaq SpeedPaq 144-I errors before installing any driver updates.
