The Sony Ericsson W800 provides the mobile user with the functionality of selecting between wired connection via Universal Serial Bus interface or wireless connection using its Bluetooth connectivity module. The device driver for the Sony Ericsson W800 Bluetooth Modem allows for the implementation of secured wireless connectivity. This connection can be used for transferring digital contents to and from the mobile devices. The support for the wireless connection via Bluetooth technology can be implemented with a maximum distance of ten meters from the host controller. In this configuration the host controller for the mobile device is the Personal Computer system that is Bluetooth capable. The modem feature incorporated into the Sony Ericsson W800 allows it to function as a standalone modem device that can log into the Internet. Normally this is achieved using the infrastructure provided by the telecommunications provider instead of an Internet Service Provider.
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 implementation of the Sony Ericsson W800 Bluetooth Modem using its corresponding device driver allows the user to take advantage of not only the telephony features of the device but its Bluetooth functionality as well. Essentially synchronization between the mobile device and the host controller using Bluetooth technology can be achieved at relatively the same speed compared to using the Universal Serial Bus interface port. In this context the modem functionality which can be used to transmit data, voice, and images to remote systems or mobile devices can also achieved the same data transfer rates as a wired connection. The role of the device driver is essentially to provide a communication link between the host controller and the mobile device to allow communication programs installed in the computer system to identify the presence of the modem hardware. The device driver makes it possible for communication programs and Web browsers to take advantage of the communication protocols provided by the W800 similar to any type of modem device.
