I dunno; The first wireless card was not a PCI-E card. I have no idea WHAT kind of card it was... it was maybe a third the size of a PCI-E card.

So whatever it was, was going after the wireless function specifically.

Just get one of those USB wireless card thingys.

The card or antenna were going bad on laptop and I had to buy one. It fixed the problem and let me upgrade to wireless AC for like 20 bucks.

Did it look something like this?

PCI-Express slots come in different sizes, depending on the number of lanes they have.

I agree that this sounds like a slot going bad if in fact you were using the same slot for both cards. That said, in addition to malware, I've seen antivirus / network protection suites (e.g. Symantec) and 3rd party wireless tools blow up the TCP/IP stack or screw up the adapter before. You'll probably get a more concise idea of what's going on by looking for errors in the System event log and the WLAN-Autoconfig log...
