The Intel PCI ADSL Modem is used to provide the host computer system with the functionality of connecting to the Internet using a Digital Subscriber Line telephone service. Compared to dial-up modems the functions remain basically the same with the difference being mostly in the data transfer speeds that can be achieved by the connection bandwidth. Basically the Digital Subscriber Line is hundred times or more faster compared to the traditional dial-up telephone line. The device driver for the Intel PCI ADSL Modem allows the supported hardware component to take advantage of the benefits of the Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line service which essentially delivers both voice and data packets using the same line. The two components are distinguished by the frequency used in the transmission which in turn prevents one from interfering with the other. This hardware component can also be referred to as a transceiver or ATU-R.
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
This hardware component installs directly into a vacant PCI slot on the computer motherboard. Once properly installed with its corresponding device driver it provides access to an always on Internet connection that can attain download speeds of 8000 kilobits per second and upload data transfer rates of 1000 kilobits per second. Sharing the high speed Internet connection is possible if supported by the underlying operating system environment. If possible the device driver will support this Internet connection sharing process by communicating with the necessary networking protocols. Any security routines implemented will likewise be supported including encryption algorithms. The device driver for the Intel PCI ADSL Modem also simplifies the process of configuring the Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line connection. The associated user interface provides the computer user with a way of defining associated components like Domain Name Servers, Internet Protocol Address, and Default Gateway connection among others. This interface also provides a way of defining the behavior of the supported device at runtime. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Intel PCI ADSL Modem Installer errors before installing any driver updates.
