This hardware component is a communication device that fits into the PCMCIA expansion slot of the host computer system. These types of expansion slots are normally found in mobile devices like laptops and notebooks. As a communication device it allows the host computer system to log into remote networking environments and the Internet. In some instances the computer user may be required to subscribe to an Internet Service Provider to be able to successfully connect to the Internet. As such the device driver for the DGC GROUP PCMCIA Modem also supports not only the communication protocols used by the underlying operating system but also the different security, authentication, and encryption algorithms that it uses. This will allow the computer user to also log into secured remote computer networks provided that he has the necessary authorization to do so. In the same manner, these protocols will prevent an unauthorized computer user from gaining access to the various network resources available online.
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 DGC GROUP PCMCIA Modem falls under the classification of a softmodem which means that it is software driven rather than hardware centered. What this translates to is that it relies mostly on the functionality of its device driver in conjunction with the feature sets of the underlying operating system platform to deliver its intended capabilities. This is opposite to hardware based communication devices which rely mostly on the capabilities of its chipsets and use only the device driver to activate them. The installation of the correct device driver for this particular hardware component allows the computer user to benefit from the Digital Call Progress interface feature. This is a proprietary technology which is similar to the functionalities of other communication devices but is implemented within the framework of the supported hardware component. By design this hardware component is applicable for office or mobile computing environments. It is also compatible with various BASE-T and BASE-TX communication protocols. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and DGC GROUP PCMCIA Modem errors before installing any driver updates.
