Cant seem to update my wireless drivers...windows says my current ones are the best but there are newer ones listed here. How do I get around this?

I currently have Atheros AR2985 ver. 9.0.0.222
The new drivers are Atheros WiFi AR5B95 v9.2.0.113

Help please.

Update through device manager brah. Put the files from the 9.2 ver. on your desktop and search for them through ur wirless device in device manager. PROFIT!

Sorry.......using Device Manager to update them is when I get the message...windows says my current ones are the best. They are clearly older drivers than the ones I want to install

Are you choosing the look for file on my computer / browse, or are you doing it automatically while the file is yet to be extracted?

All files are extracted to my desktop...checked the .inf file and it says
it is v920113....

Figured it out...

For some reason from Device Manager you click update driver...if you select Browse my computer for driver Software you get 2 options....Search for driver and a browse box you can browse to your desktop location or Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer. Both allow you to browse to your driver folder but only Let me Pick will install the new driver

I currently have Atheros AR2985 ver. 9.0.0.222

Let Me Pick gives me....

The new drivers are Atheros WiFi AR5B95 v9.2.0.113

Thanx anyway....
