You can just replace the oem.tgz and reboot.

Or you could try this:
1) copy the new driver to /tmp
2) unload the existing one with vmkload_mod
3) copy the new one to /usr/lib/vmware/vmkmod
4) load it with vmkload_mod

It that process goes screwy you can just cycle the host and you'll be back to when you were before.

Ok tried the driver: download/file.php?id=400

Didn't work, in fact, using this alone seems to render my ESXi install to not see any network cards.
I've tried this method:
viewtopic.php?p=12072#p12072

and wasn't able to get the system to see the network cards either.

Using this package:
viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1272&p=9462#p9462

Seems to have helped as Pings stablized from my laptop to the VMs but still no network access out of the VMs. I still can't hit the webgui of the FreeNAS VM :(
Also Win7 VM now shows cable is unplugged.
