    Centrino N2230 fails scan test


      I'm working on my first build and it has been more stressful than I'd like. 

      This is a Gigabyte GA-Z77N wireless Motherboard w/ Centrino N2230 intel i5 3570k CPU

      I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit OS.

      I installed drivers uptodate S64 (11/13/2013).


      I use TimeWarner cable w/ an Apple Airport Router.

      I am unable to detect any networks w/ the Centrino however.  there are usually 4-5 networks available from my neighbors. 


      Using the Manual test, it passes the hardware and Wifi Radio button test, but gets stuck at Scan.


      I've seen other posts about this and have tried adjusting properties of the N2230 (wifi roaming to 5 for example) without any luck.


      Do I have a bad network card?  What's the best way to proceed? 

      BTW, my laptop/iPad have no problem accessing network so I doubt it is any sort of local/geographical issue.


      I'll take any tips/advice.
