To further test your reader, insert a CAC, PIV or any chip and pin credit card into the reader while the reader is plugged into your computer/device.  Another category should appear in Windows Device Manager below the Smart card readers category entitled "Smart cards".  If you remove/insert your card from the reader, the Smart Cards category should toggle on and off.
