Hello boblv,

As we understand, you system is not able to update the wireless adapter driver.

For Laptop PC's you should obtain the driver from the http://www.intel.com/support/oems.htm PC manufacturer support as first option. In some cases, the OEMs may have customized the driver, or the adapter in the PC, so the manufacturer driver will be the best option.

If you require additional assistance, let us now the following: PC model, Operating System, wireless adapter model, driver shown in device manager, driver version you are attempting to install, also the link you are using to the download the driver.
