Confused G74sx - problem with Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 633ANHMW wifi adapter - plz hlp!

I just installed an Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 633ANHMW wifi adapter in my Asus g74sx-a1

Windows recognizes the adapter, installs the most updated driver (verified), enables the adapter, and appears, for all intents and purposes, to be working perfectly... But it wont work! - it wont find any networks and gives me an "unexpected error" when I try to do anything related to managing my wireless networks.

things Ive tried:

uninstalling/reinstalling the device & driver many times
rolling back/updating drivers - also used the tool on the intel website
deleting the adapter all together and scanning for hardware changes (which windows promptly finds the adapter, installs the correct driver, and still wont work)

Im currently back running on my stock wifi adapter (Atheros) - which works just fine...

Please HALP!!

Default

Bum card perhaps? Or just not fully seated?

Another concern would be a BIOS Whitelist for only particular cards.

I would reach out to Asus Tech Support first, see if the card is supported...
