If you've done all your updates. Also refreshed your sources. In System>Administration>Synaptic Package Manager then Reload and Mark All Upgrades and install.

Then check System>Administration>Hardware Drivers and see if it found a newer driver.

It just might. Then you might be able to increase it.
