mdc8021x.sys driver

i am lookin for a version older than the file I have since the file I have has been causing problems. Just telling me a place to get it is fine but it must be free. My current version is unknown besides the fact that I remember in installation that it was a 3 series driver. Anyways if you know how to find the version I can find it and then tell you but a link to a site with drivers would be nice. This is rather urgent as I hope to be able to go and do some wirelss network searching tommorow..

Check in the driver details if it lests the driver version.
In any get the name of the *.sys driver file from here and rtight click in explorer to get version. When you have the version, that's when we can know what to look for.
