So I just bought the Asus pce-ax3000 WiFi adapter. I plugged it into the usb header labeled “ROG-EXT” which is the only one available but my computer isn’t reading it. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Does the WIFI work but not whatever USB connectivity? Looking at the quick-start guide it requires two steps. One with the card installed but no USB and a second with USB connected.
I don't understand what the USB connectivity is for, some references say it is not required.

Oddly enough when I flipped what was plugged into each usb header it worked. Thanks for the response though!
