Default Laptop wireless driver

looking at the wireless driver for an acer aspire 7551 and im seeing two drivers on the acer webpage. one is a normal Atheros Wireless Lan driver (23mb) and another Atheros Wireless Lan Driver HB93/HB95/HB97 (9mb). what is the difference between these two drivers?

One might include extra software and the other could be just the drivers.

Go into Device Manager and see which one you have exactly by expanding the Network Devices category.
