This looks like my card, out of the box:

If so, you should flash it to 1.4.9 and then flash it to 1.7.4 to
get the latest enhancements and to properly support WDS. Why the two step
flash? Don't know... but I tried to flash 1.5.6 directly to it and the 
flashing failed. Flashing 1.4.9 first made it work ok again...
