The GlobeTrotter 3G+ 802.11b/g Wireless is a PCMCIA based communication card that can be plugged into the corresponding slot on the mobile computing device. It can also be hosted on a desktop computer system provided that a PCMCIA adapter is used. When deployed with its corresponding device driver it allows the host computer system to take advantage of wireless computer networks by utilizing existing access points. Consistent with wireless network environments, this particular hardware component also supports existing network protocols used by the host network environment. It also makes use of security algorithms that may be in place for private networks. The device driver supports the issuance of network credentials that are required in the authentication process before the host computer system can log into the network and take advantage of available shared resources. The usage of the GlobeTrotter 3G+ 802.11b/g Wireless allows for the expansion of network environments which are essentially limited when taken in the context of wired networks.
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 device driver also makes sure that if a PCMCIA adapter is used for desktop computer systems that it is compatible with the hosted card. Basically PCMCIA adapters are not as universal as their mobile computer system counterparts which can host practically any type of PCMCIA based device. For majority of device drivers the support extended by manufacturers are limited to major operating system environments. The contents of the device driver is used by third party developers to extend the functionality of the supported hardware component allowing it to be used in computer systems which are not inherently supported. The device driver for the GlobeTrotter 3G+ 802.11b/g Wireless also functions as the layout and information file that provides data to the underlying operating system environment. In this context it provides the necessary details to the central registry database which in turn are used by the installed communication software applications. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and GlobeTrotter 3G+ 802.11b/g Wireless errors before installing any driver updates.
