Thank you for the post. Version 21.1 refers to the software version that contain the drivers for different ethernet controller, thus even after the update the driver version will not appear as version 21.1 as this is the software version, the driver for 82583V in this package is version 12.7.28. As this is an onboard NIC, it is recommended still to contact your board vendor for the customized driver. Hope this clarified.
Ah, ok, this definitely clarifies my confusion. Thank you for your reply!
