I have just built a machine using an Intel DZ77GA-70K motherboard. It comes with a Bluetooth/WLAN module that connects to a USB header on the motherboard.

I have been unable to install the drivers for the WLAN device. The Bluethooth device is working fine. I suspect it is a hardware issue and that I would need to return the motherboard but would like to put it out there to see if I have missed something.

Can someone advise whether I need to return this motherboard for a swap or whether this is an installation problem? I am leaning towards it being a hardware problem.

Here's a screenshot of the Device Manager displaying the problematic device.

I have found the following error report in Windows Event Viewer when Windows tries to install the WLAN device.

In the end, I have decided that the motherboard is faulty and to return the motherboard. I have also replaced it with an Asus P8Z77-V Pro, which I think might be a better board than the Intel.
