How to use PCI-E Network Adapter? Asus PCE-AC68

I built a new pc and it has a PCE-AC68 network adapter from ASUS. I have downloaded the driver but I can't find the AC68 in my network adapters. Its installed on the 5th out of 6 total PCI slots on my Maximus x Hero Motherboard. I'm currently using a USB wifi dongle.

    Try testing it in the 6th slot.

    Did you install the driver?
    Did you install chipset drivers before that?

    The 6th slot is a 16x slot I'm pretty sure. The network adapter is definitely way too small to fit in that... And that's not what she said

    I installed the driver for the network adapter, and I'm pretty sure that the chipset drivers are all installed.
    There is an unknown device in device manger, under "Other Devices"

    Even if smaller, it should work. You can test.

    Then reinstall chipset drivers to be 100% sure.
    Can you post screenshot from Device Manager?

    I reinstalled it in the 6th slot, found it under other devices, reinstalled the driver and it worked! Didn't think it would though...

    @SkyNetRising thanks for the effort anyway
