Why does my pci wifi card cause my pc to crash?

Hello, today i built my first pc and need some help... After i had installed windows on my pc, i went to use my wifi and as i was entering my password for the wifi, the pc froze. So, i reset it and did it again- It froze again. After this, I took the wifi card out of the PCI(or the PCIe(not sure which is which without looking at them)) slot and tried my PC and it worked perfectly. However, when I put in my ethernet as a replacement it wasn't recognized by my PC and didn't allow me to access the internet. Can anyone help me with this or suggest something to help me fix the problem?
