IBM Netfinity 10/100 Ethernet Adapter from IBM Corp allows you to upgrade a desktop PC to a wired and faster connection for office and home networks. With the adapter, you can access networks for high-speed internet connections, file sharing, online gaming, video streaming, and for other purposes. The adapter connects to computers via PCI communications subsystem to which the adapter connects and this interface plus the different technologies, protocols, and standards that the adapter uses are facilitated by the device drivers.

Drivers are small utilities from IBM Corp. and they act as interfaces between the hardware components and the software components. IBM Netfinity 10/100 Ethernet Adapter drivers connect the different components that make up the adapter as well as the adapter to other attached devices. This ethernet adapter supports 10/100 bus architecture and this is facilitated by the device drivers. These drivers also support the different device features.

IBM’s Netfinity drivers facilitate the retrieval of manufacturer and device details and compatibility information such as compatible operating systems and devices and the OS uses this information to register the printer with IBM Corp, to configure the adapter, and to facilitate the updating of the drivers. They also provide the interrupt handling required for any necessary asynchronous time-dependent interface. Although the adapter can run on generic motherboard drivers, IBM recommends that you use device-specific drivers, because the generic ones will only support basic device features and functions.
