Default Crazy problem!

So I was having some OC issues which SEEM to be fixed by me flashing the bios on my ASUS M5A97 Mobo. Weirdest thing happened though. Once bios were done and I start my computer, now my PCI Wireless card has no driver and is an "ethernet adapter".

So I get the drivers onto a USB stick and install them. The only way they will install is if I unplug the card and plug it in then immediatly hit the install app for the driver. Never knew you could plug n play PCI cards but that was the driver insturctions also.

So it all works fine and dandy right? Every time I restart my computer the driver for the wifi card mysteriously disapears and I have to repeat the entire unplug/plug in the card and install the driver to get it to work. So weird? I assume it is a bios setting but I checked already and don't think that is the case.

Card is a D-Link Wireless Extreme N Adapter DWA-552
