Supra PCI 56i is a modem produced by diamond multimedia. Modems are electronic devices which are used to convert the digital signals of a computer into specific frequencies which then travel through cable television or telephone lines. On reaching their destination the modem which receives the frequencies then demodulates them back to digital data. Thus modems are used as a means of communication through the computer network and assist in networking applications. The idea is to transmit the digital signals in an easier manner. For this device to function properly and efficiently, it is important for the user to update the driver as frequently as possible, preferably once every month or even more often whenever possible. Using outdated device driver versions is likely to cause device conflicts and produce errors in the work of the modem. During driver update, it is important to create windows backup.
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 diamond modems belonging to the Supra series are able to achieve even higher quality performance due to the v.44 as well as v.92 compression standards which have been adopted only recently. V.44 and v.92 are ITU (International Telecommunications Union) standards which are used for analog modem links. With these new standards, the user can benefit from extensive analog internet access. The data transfers upstream are also accelerated by around 40% and the dial-up standards for the internet are also much faster and use a great start-up sequence. These standards also have superior compression algorithms which enable the user to send regular file types such as e-mail, executable files and HTML in a much more efficient manner. Remarkable features include modem-on-hold which enables the user to receive calls without losing internet connection. Users of Supra PCI 56i will find that they have more rapid internet speeds.
