This driver package includes drivers for many Intel NICs. When a new driver package is released some drivers are updated while some may remain same as previous packages.
In your case, it seems 126.96.36.199 is already the latest version for your Pro/1000 MT Dual Port Server Adapter. You can manually extract the package and check the file property of the following file:
I am also facing the same problem in my Linux server. Here are few details FYI;
OS: Asianux 4.0 SP1-x86
NIC: Intel 10Gbe XF SR 2Port Server Adapter
I have upgraded the latest driver "3.9.15". But after rebooting, the server shows the old driver version only (3.0.12-k2-1).
Installation steps which I followed:
1. tar -zxvf ixgbe-3.9.15.tar.gz
2. cd /ixgbe-3.9.15/src
3. make install
4. modprobe ixgbe
Kindly help me out. Let me know if you need anymore details.
