Atheros driver update from Windows Update

I've received notice in Windows Update on my X61 7675 CTO with Windows 7 Professional (recently upgraded from Vista Business) that there is an optional driver update for my 11a/b/g Wireless LAN Mini PCI Express Adapter (see info below). For some reason WU doesn't tell me what version it wants me to download, only that there is an "update." Also, I cannot find any information on Lenovo.com or in this forum about whether this driver is supported by Lenovo and recommended for install on my X61. (I've tried upgrading the Atheros driver before with pretty bad results.) So what do I do - anybody tried this driver? Any thoughts or advice?

 

Thanks,

 

 

Per Bylund
