    This should clear it up for you. Look at the diagram labeled "USB Only Mini PCIe"

    http://electronics.stackexchange.co...format-with-usb-host-interface-what-does-this

    It is basically wired to the USB bus and not to the PCI Express bus. Most WLAN cards will not work here, some may. I had a netbook with a similar slot and found a specific WLAN card that worked but it was a specific model made to interface with USB only mini PCIe slots. On my M11X I use mine with the adapter below for my mouse's receiver.
