Hi, this is my problem: i replaced the Wireless LAN module with an External GPU adapter, i thought the free Mini PCI-E port my laptop has could detect this new GPU adapter but it didnt, turns out only the Wifi Slot Detects it

i can still use the Ethernet port for internet but i dont want to loose my wifi connection so the questions are:

is this extra Mini PCI-E port really a Mini PCI-E Port or it's just a SSD reserved port? they both looks the same
If so, is there any adapter out there that can let me use this port as a normal Mini PCI-E Port instead of just SSD?
If the awnser is NO, then is there any WiFi Module that could work in that port? (i tried installing my WiFi Module in said port but the System couldnt detect it)

here you can see both ports
