The Microlink 56K Fun II is a device driver for the modem manufactured by Elsa. The program helps the hardware component to work properly with other peripherals in the PC where the device is installed. The device is an add-on peripheral that can be connected on either PCs or notebooks to provide the user with internet connections. The modem has three LEDs that indicate the power status, the active phone line and the data flow form the internet service providers. While some people may concede that, there is nothing fun about a modem, the fact that the device comes in beautiful transparent colors and works no doubt add some appeal to the product. The device connects to the PC via the 9-pin serial port and uses its own transformer to access 13 Amps power. This is unlike its USB counterpart, whose power is sourced directly from the PC.
