Firmware update (drivers)

Hello, everyone

I would like to know how I can update the drivers on a node on my Proxmox cluster.
The output of dmesg show that the driver of a NIC is very old:

root@ich-pve2:~# dmesg | grep r8152
[    3.725988] usbcore: registered new interface driver r8152
[    3.895531] r8152 2-3:1.0: load rtl8153b-2 v1 10/23/19 successfully
[    3.928012] r8152 2-3:1.0 eth0: v1.11.11
[    3.933121] r8152 2-3:1.0 enx00e04c68009b: renamed from eth0
[    7.606721] r8152 2-3:1.0 enx00e04c68009b: Promiscuous mode enabled
[    7.606840] r8152 2-3:1.0 enx00e04c68009b: carrier on

I have already seen in the forum that some have a version of 2021 when issuing the same network chipset. The question now arises how I can do it. I have the latest kernel ... everything is up to date. I have already updated to pve 7 as well. Only the drivers never seem to update.

Thank you for your help
