How far can I upgrade Intel Centrino N-6235 Driver?

I have several HP ProBook Series Laptops with the Intel Centrino N-6235 Driver. The Device Manager shows the current Driver to be 15.17.xx. The Intel website says the latest driver for the N-6235 is 19.10.00. The installer says I must remove the old driver, which I do, and then install 19.10.00. However, once this process completes, the Device Manager still shows that I am using Driver 15.17.xx? What am I doing wrong? Or will the N-6235 not push past 15.17.xx? The laptops experience frequent (as in several times an hour) wifi dropouts that require restarting the wifi or rebooting the computer. I was hoping an upgrade to 19.xx.xx would solve this problem. Thank you for your insight.

What Gize2 informed you is correct as you can confirm through the online document he has posted.

 

Intel recommends to obtain the latest drivers from the computer manufacturer first as they may contain features and customization made specifically for this adapter installed in this particular system if the adapter is installed by factory.
