An HSP based modem is also often referred to as a WinModem which in terms of computer communications refers to a hardware component that is software driven. In this context it is extremely important for the installation of the device driver for the HSP56 WDM DEVICE (Realtek MR) hardware component. Essentially a modem communication device makes use of two major components to execute its intended functionality of transmitting data packets. The first component is the data pump which provides the basic modulation and demodulation feature of the supported device. This refers mostly to the conversion process of data taking it from analog to digital and vice versa. The second component is the controller which delivers the device's identity. This is where the protocols and AT command set interpretations come in. This component is also responsible for the error connection, data compression, and other basic modulation algorithms.
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
Traditionally these components of the communication device are incorporated in the hardware as part of the chipsets. The introduction of the WinModem initially divided these components into their hardware and software representations with the data pump represented in the hardware chipsets while the controller is activated by the supporting software interface. The deployment of HSP modem devices like the HSP56 WDM DEVICE (Realtek MR) began the implementation of both components from the software interface. The HSP actually refers to the Host Signal Processor which is responsible for transferring the responsibilities of the chipsets to the underlying software application or the device driver. The device driver in this instance relies on the computing power of the processor of the host computer system to initiate its communication functions. The device driver also communicates with the network protocols of the underlying operating system environment allowing the machine to log into remote network environments like the Internet. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and HSP56 WDM DEVICE (Realtek MR) errors before installing any driver updates.
