The current driver is v188.8.131.52 available here:
Make sure your Netgear router is Draft 2 802.11n compliant. Latest firmware usually adds that support. (If not already present)
Make sure your Netgear is configured to use N (but not N only). With N you'll usually see better performance a bit away from the router rather than very close. Also be sure to use WPA2-PSK/AES for best connections.

This driver doesn't seem to want to install. I uninstalled the aforementioned 11 b/g/n driver and tried to download from a wired connection and install the driver you reference, the Thinkpad 11a/b/g/n. It continues to tell me it can't install the driver for that device, but doesn't explain why. Then when Windows tells me there is not a driver loaded for the network device, and goes to Windows Update to get one, it gets the same old driver I had installed, the one mentioned in my first mail. So we remain in the same state. I am getting rather confused, but at least things are working in the semi-crippled state. Can you tell me how to determine what actual hardware, not driver software, exists in this machine?

Are you sure it is the a/b/g/n card? Post your Model/Type. (looks like this on the bottom 1958-W5U)
You may instead had this card: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-72700
Which is indeed an entirely different card using a different driver.
