Sorry for the earlier post. I failed to notice that the driver is for your 
clients, not the server.
I do not think that the script will work because it probes your hardware for a 
local chipset (in your server) in order to build/rebuild the kernel modules.
I am not familiar on how to build the modules for the clients to work.

Please let us know if/when you succeed
