When I plug the DisplayPort cable directly into the motherboard IO (while GPU is in the PCI-E slot) my network card works fine. But when i connect the DisplayPort cable into the GPU, my network card stops working? Anyone know Why that is?

My hardware:
Motherboard: ASUS ROG Strix Z270E Gaming
Network card: TP-link Archer TX3000e
GPU: GTX 1070

Seems you should move WiFi adapter card into a different PCIe slot. Try next long slot below GPU.

Don't worry about slot length. It is fine to use short PCIe x4 connectors in long x16 slots. Only fix it before turning on.
