Intel PRO/Wireless 3945abg

Wireless connection sporadically disconnecting and reconnecting.  Found updated driver on lenovo.com, 6mwc24ww.exe.    During installation I get a popup, "This version can not upgrade from the current older product.  Please uninstall the current older product manually.  Ok, so I go to the device manager and delete the device.  Device is deleted, I run the install again and get the exact same pop up.  Any ideas?  Thanks.
