SupraExpress 56i PRO PCI Modem Enumerator is a PCI modem manufactured by Diamond Multimedia. Modems are devices which are used to facilitate communication through computer networks. They are electronic devices which facilitate the change of digital signals within a computer from digital data into specific frequencies which are then transmitted via cable TV lines or telephone lines. On reaching their destination the frequencies are received by the modem and are then demodulated back to digital data. Modems are therefore very useful in networking applications. PCI modems are those that use PCI slots in the computer. They are provided together with an enumerator or a driver which facilitates linkage between old COM ports and the new PCI bus. With this driver, the system is able to recognize the modem as a traditional COM port with an IRQ assignment that is not the standard one.
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
Most of these PCI modems are based on software and will therefore require the user to have a driver that is specific to a particular operating system. The drivers for this device come with a self installer to facilitate installation. However, a traditional installation may at times be necessary. In this installation process, the first step is to have the system powered down and the modem installed into a PCI slot. The system is then booted up as normal. The device is then detected by windows. The user should cancel a driver installation prompt and let windows conclude loading. The driver file is then downloaded, after which the user should close the internet and all other open programs. The file is then extracted from the one which has been downloaded and the user should then browse, locate the .exe file and double click on its icon. A self-extractor window will come up and this should initiate installation. After installation, Windows will automatically restart. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and SupraExpress 56i PRO PCI Modem Enumerator errors before installing any driver updates.
