Default Mini PCIe wifi card

So when I originally got my desktop it came with wifi installed, via a half-length mini PCIe wireless card. Since then I have changed the motherboard and the wireless no longer works, I dont think it was plugged in.
You can see the card here, under networking

I have an Asrock H71M-DGS, is it compatible with this motherboard?

Doesn't look like that Asrock board has a mini pci express slot.
You'll have to get a pcie wireless card

Yea like Joe said, the new board doesn't have a slot for that card. That's why it's not showing up in Windows.
