    Question Completley confused regarding LAN drivers.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question but is anyone able to help me make sense of the list of LAN drivers in the image below?

    I've tried to make sense of them but they just appear to be a confusing mess to me what with version number not being in any logical order, not to mention 2 of them having the same version number and another having 2 completely different version numbers.

    If that's the case what purpose do the drivers serve? I don't mean to doubt you I'm just really confused.

    Not true at all, you always need drivers, never use Windows built in drivers, if you want better performance, better stability and have current and any new features your hardware supports you NEED to download drivers!

    For your intel network adapter (LAN) download the latest from intel I will provide a link below...if on Windows 10...

    https://downloadcenter.intel.com/dow...for-Windows-10

    Download the Prowin32.exe if on a 32-bit OS
    Download the Prowin64.exe if on a 64-bit OS (You most definitely should have a 64-bit OS) but double check...

    And whats further confusing is as screenshot the driver tab says they are version 12*** when in fact they are not, i have no ideas why intel states 22** on their page, must be the only company that confsuses people with their drivers including the chipset driver too.Click image for larger version.

    Hi,

    22.x.x.x / 23.x.x.x / 24.x.x.x = Intel Ethernet Package Version (Drivers & Software)
    12.x.x.x = Intel Ethernet Driver Version (Drivers Only)

    Thanks MoKiChU, I wandered why there were 2 version numbering schemes.

    I see, thanks for the clarification, does intel supply a driver only package?
