CTI 56K PCI Modem is a standard 56k modem that uses the PCI interface. 56K modems are used to connect to a computer network at a speed of 56 kbps. These modems were used to be internally built into older computers. However, the broadband DSL technology today is replacing these modems. The maximum speed of 56 kbps is only a theoretical speed. The modem usually offers speeds depending on the telephone line that the modem is connected to. The upload speed of the modem reaches up to 33.6 kbps. These modems are cost-effective, but they offer slower speeds as compared to newer modems. The device is a PCI card that can be fitted into an available expansion slot on a computer. This slot connects the device directly to the motherboard. The device can be used to send and receive data as well as send and receive fax at a speed of 14.4 kbps.
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
Modems are network devices. They are used to connect to an existing network. More importantly, they are used to connect to the Internet. These devices modulate digital data from a computer and convert them to analog carrier signals. These analog signals can now be transmitted over to a telephone line or cable line, depending on what is available. When the signal is received by another modem, it demodulates the analog signal and converts it back its original digital form. Because computers work with digital information, the information that modems receive need to be converted into digital format. Some modems support data, fax and voice in a single device. Such modems can be used not only for sending and receiving data and fax but can also be used to make and receive calls. Nowadays, some network devices can now connect to networks wirelessly.
