Only network controller with proper driver could provide a faster network connection.



For proper working of network controller



Like all other computer devices, network controller also need drivers to support devices. The operating system initially gives requests to these drivers and these drivers pass the request to the network controllers. So, the drivers work as an intermediate between the user and the device.
