    After install of driver for Pro/1000 MT Dual Port driver details are unchanged



      We have a Dell Server Intel Pentium 4, 2.80GHz CPU with:

      4gig ram

      I’m trying to download and install the latest driver updates for our Intel Pro/1000 MT Dual Port Server Adapter.  When I look at the driver details for that adapter using Device Manager\Network adapters\Intel® Pro/1000 MT Dual Port Server Adapter right clik and select properties, click the Driver tab, it shows:

      Driver Provider:          Intel
      Driver Date:                8/20/2008
      Driver Version:  
      Digital Signer:              Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher


      Many diagnostics that we run on our server indicate that we should update the driver for this adapter to the latest version.

      I have attempted to download and install the PROWin32.exe file numerous times in different ways without success.  I got the file from here: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=18719&ProdId=880&lang=eng#help


      After the many times of trying to update the driver, I go back to look at the driver details in Device Manager and it still shows the older version and date even after rebooting the server.


      One install and update created a c:\Install.log.  The end of that log file indicates the driver was updated successfully.


      Does anybody know how we can get the driver to update?


      Any help would be gratefully appreciated.
