    Problem updating wireless driver

    maui4max

      have an Intel Pro 2200bg wireless card.  When I check the driver version it shows 9.0.4.33 and is date 2/08/2007.  I've repeatedly downloaded/installed version 12.4.0.0 dated 4/9/2009 from the Intel site.  After running the download a message comes up saying it was installed.  However, when I check the driver version it still shows up as 9.0.4.33 (and yes, I have rebooted).  I've done this several times with the same results.  Does anyone know what's going on?

       

      Also, I have a few questions:

       

      1.  Where does the driver actually reside (path name)?

      2.  What is the name of the driver?

       

      Another question, I have two laptops both have 802.11g cards.  The speed test on my other laptop is 12 - 18 Mbps.  The speed test on this laptop is 5 - 6 Mbps.  Any thoughts as to the speed difference?

       

      Thanks.
