Default WiFi Adapter Problem

Hey guys I have a problem with my Wifi Adapter, so this is my first build I am trying to make it as perfect as possible but I run into a problem (Oh god ) the wifi adapter won't fit in the PCI E slot. Here is the adapter:
I don't know if it's the case or motherboard, but I am worried about this though. Please help!



http://pcpartpicker.com/part/tp-link...s-network-c... here is the case I'm trying to put it in: Azza CSAZ-206 ATX Mid Tower Case (CSAZ-206) - PCPartPicker Here is the motherboard: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyt...board-gaf2a...
Does anyone have any suggestions on why it isn't fitting in the PCI e slot? Thanks in advance

Your links for your wifi adapter/motherboard are broken.

So when you say it won't fit in the slot... are you talking about it not sliding into the motherboard PCI-E slot (you need to be using one of the PCI-E x1 slots; the short ones) or are you talking about it not lining up with the case's expansion slots?

The two slots on the bottom of the board are only pci....not pci/e
Are you attempting to place the wireless card in the short slot above the pci slots?
