Differences in chipset for network card i210


I have a PC that has an i210 network card with for ethernet ports. I am using a software that can only work with specific network cards and hardware ids. My card has the ID of  8086 157B and it says that the software can only work with a card thats id is 8086 1533.

My Question is is there a difference between the two chipsets or are they the same just with different IDs? if there are differences I would love to know and if it could be explained how these differences can impact the signal I need for the software 

thank you
