These are drivers for an internet/ phone modem. This new dial-up modem includes new features such as Modem-on-hold (MOH), PCM upstream data transmission and Quick Connect to improve on the performance of general modems. There is also the option of data compression, due to the compressibility of HTML files; the files can be compressed from 20 ‚Äì 60 percent averagely and to the maximum of 200 percent. This allows data to be downloaded in a specified amount of time. MOH allows one to receive phone calls while connected to the internet with through the same line. The modem also offers the capability of call waiting where one can also continue being online. The call waiting option can be available for the entire modem users but one has to confer with the Internet Service Provider (ISP). The modem also reduces the time one takes to connect with the ISP.
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 quick connect allows one to save the detailed information of the call and this can be used to evaluate the quality of server usage in future. The length of information that can be saved is determined by the type of phone one may be using. PCM Upstream enables the increase of upstream data and information transfer rates from to the ISP from the user. This means that the time used to transmit files and email attachments is drastically reduced. The upstream data rate can be increased to a rate of up to 48 Kilobytes Per Second (Kbps) giving the modem a plus compare to the earlier versions which could only upstream to a maximum of 31.2 Kbps. On the other side, increase in upstream will automatically reduce download speed and one has to configure the modem to suit what they highly require. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Compex RL2000 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter errors before installing any driver updates.
