    Intel Update process suggests Windows 7 driver for my Vista 32 PC

    properjob70

      For my Vista 32 PC the auto detect on the Intel website suggests I have a newer driver available for my wired network (see below). I believe 6.241.623.2010 is the latest driver for my Vista installation and 7.027.0920.2010 is infact for Windows 7. In any event the laptop was intelligent enough to reject the suggested newer driver as unsuitable. Any reason this should be happening?
