The PCI MIMO Wireless LAN Card by Gigabyte is capable of delivering wireless access to users’ desktop computers, and sharing and connecting their broadband connection, as well as their network resources. This WLAN card can increase the wireless coverage by up to a maximum of 6X the typical 802.11g coverage. It also has support for WMM (Wi-Fi Multimedia) for higher video and audio priority designated for media streaming. The PCI MIMO Wireless LAN Card also employs wireless security features such as WPA2/ WPA and 128/ 64 bit encryption that will provide users with a secure and safe home network. It also makes use of the SmartSetup 3 proprietary application of Gigabyte which allows users an easy and quick way of setting up their wireless network and Internet connection. The MIMO or multiple input, multiple output wireless technology implemented by this device utilizes a host of receivers and transmitters for simultaneously transferring more data.
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 MIMO wireless technology uses the multipath which is a radio wave phenomenon. Multipath occurs when information bounces off the ceilings, walls or other objects and then reaches the receiving antenna in multiple instances through varying angles and at different times. This technology can leverage the multipath phenomenon by making use of ‘smart’ receivers and transmitters with a supplementary spatial dimension to considerably heighten range and performance. It enables many antennas to simultaneously accept and distribute a host of spatial streams. In order to deploy the MIMO technology, either an access point or AP, or the mobiles device (station) has to fully support MIMO. ON the other hand, the optimal range and performance may only be attained in the event that both the access point and station support MIMO. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and PCI MIMO Wireless LAN Card errors before installing any driver updates.
