Same problem with Intel NUC D34010WYKH & Centrino Advanced-N 6205 card.
I have tried 2 different 62205ANHMW cards, so I think that problem in Intel NUC or drivers or OS (Win7 x64).
And Egor_B is right! Intel Driver Update Utility doesn't find drivers for WiFi cards.
Do you have any ideas to solve this problem?
aleki_intel, Egor_B, hello!
I think I've found the solution.
Some WiFi cards had maded for specific models of Lenovo, HP & Samsung computers ("WhiteList" cards).
These cards has FRU number on the label.
!!Intel blocks the work of these cards in the OS drivers!!
My cards are currently working in Ubuntu & Mint, but not working in Win 7 & 8.1.
