Today I tried to install my new Intel AC 8265 to the M.2 slot of my Asrock B450M motherboard. While my intel SSD fits nicely in both M.2 slots of the motherboard, the AC 8265 did not fit properly. I suspect a manufacturing error. In the end I only managed to achieve these two useless results:
It seems to me this is a mistake in the AC 8265. What can I do to get wifi now?
A manufacturing error? Forced it into the slot?

Then, you will likely need to replace the motherboard and 8265, due to the damage you caused.
Why would you ever force something into a slot? Not a good idea.
