The SAMSUNG_X490 GSM Modem is used for Samsung GSM mobile phones. In principle, these devices make use of ISDN connections and can therefore sub-serve the Internet connections through the conventional ISP or Information Service Providers or send and receive faxes. To use a mobile phone with a computer, a connecting cable is required. GSM mobile phones such as the SAMSUNG_X490 GSM Modem may also be used with a PCMCIA card with modem-like capabilities. In some instances, GSM mobile phones come with a ready accessory or built-in infrared interface that meet the IrDA standard. This allows a laptop that comes with an IrDA port to become capable of communicating with the mobile phone within a certain IR beam range. The SAMSUNG_X490 GSM Modem is not really a modem in the traditional sense since the phone it is attached to does not perform the audio modulation/demodulation.
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 SAMSUNG_X490 GSM Modem generally comes with the SAMSUNG_X490 GSM Modem package, primarily developed for Microsoft Windows.

The SAMSUNG_X490 GSM Modem driver will not work on a Linux Operating System unless the phone will be used with any Linux software intended to work with any ordinary landline modems.
