MT7612E not detected on WE826

I want to use MT7612E mPCIE 5GHz AC board with ZBT WE826. Unfortunately, the board is not even recognized, all the necessary modules/drivers are present in the system.

Board description as provided by the seller:

MTK MT7612 2x2 2.4G&5G 802.11ac/b/g/n 867Mbps Half MT7612E MiniPCIE NIC Support omnipeek PCBA ODM OEM WiFi Custom Board
Chipset MTK MT7612E , Internal PA/LNA/RF SWITCH
Software OpenWRT or MTK Linux SDK Driver and Tool Chain

The same board works fine in another router I have - UniElec U7628-01:

Is there any chance to make it working in WE826?

It seems that ZBT board has a stripped down version of miniPCIE - USB & SIM pins only :frowning:

Why you choose MTK chips?

I was looking for a cheapest 11ac card in mPCIE form-factor, this one was the best option I found on Ali.

I prefer cheapest reasonable one too.
