The following points describe about the importance of using a driver for network controller in your Gateway® EC18 Series notebook.




  • Boost up the wireless signal

  • Enhance network connection

  • Proper working of network controller



Boost up the wireless signal



Sometimes due to some reasons the wireless signals can get fluctuated and because of it network connection can face some difficulties. In such cases, the driver informs the network controller about the problem and also helps in boosting up the signal. Hence, the network controller driver plays a vital role in boosting up the wireless signal for optimum performance of your system.



Enhance network connection



Network controllers are nothing but the devices which are used to transfer files. The speed of network connection can be increased only by the network driver. The speed of the network actually depends upon the speed of the network controller that is controlled by the driver. Thus the network controller with a compatible driver assures you the fastest network connection.



Proper working of network controller


Like all other system devices, network controller also requires a driver to support it. The operating system passes the requests to the driver and the driver in turn passes on the request to the network controller. Thus the drivers work as an intermediate between the device and the operating system.
