The D-Link DFE-680TX/TXD CardBus PC Card Network Interface Card plugs into the PCMCIA slot of the mobile computing machine. It provides mobile computers that do not have built-in Network Interface Cards with the capability to hook up to wired network environments. It can also be used to provide the host computer system with an additional Network Interface Card for better flexibility when connecting to various network environments. The device driver of the D-Link DFE-680TX/TXD CardBus PC Card is used to communicate with the operating system protocols to make sure that the appropriate resources are provided to the PCMCIA slot where the hardware component resides. The device driver supports the connection of Ethernet cables which serve as the medium for the data exchange. When properly installed into the host computer system the device driver will allow the supported network hardware component to be properly identified in the Device Manager applet.
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
In terms of networking technologies, majority of newer mobile computer systems are equipped with built-in Wired, Wireless, or both types of Network Interface Adapters. This however does not mean that the D-Link DFE-680TX/TXD CardBus PC Card is no longer needed or completely useless. Depending on the usage of the mobile computer system, an additional network adapter card can provide extended functionalities that may be required by the computer user. Consistent with majority of network interface cards, it must conform to the structure provided by the host network environment as well as the host computer system. This means that whatever protocol is active must be supported to make sure that the host machine can correctly log into the network environment and initiate data transfer activities. The D-Link DFE-680TX/TXD CardBus PC Card adapter is also used to provide additional security measures when residing in a network environment. Essentially, two network adapters can allow the host machine to simultaneously connect to two network environments with different rights. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and D-Link DFE-680TX/TXD CardBus PC Card errors before installing any driver updates.
