Can someone please help me figure out how to upgrade the drivers and firmware for my Dell R610 BCM5709 NIC?

I'm baffled why it's so confusing on Dell's site.

#lspci -nnk

Code:
[root@server ~]# lspci -v | grep Ethernet -A 1
01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Inc. and subsidiaries NetXtreme II BCM5709 Gigabit Ethernet (rev 20)
        Subsystem: Dell PowerEdge R610 BCM5709 Gigabit Ethernet
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 30

Welcome to the forums
your first problem is CentOS is now dead, the final release [CentOS 8] came to an end in 2021. it is recomended on the old CentOS forums you upgrade to Rocky/Alma/OEL/Springdale ASAP.
