Do you mean your "D-Link card" is now connected to the modem/router through a cable and you would create a wireless connection by using it? ...or you're now connected through another card (an ethernet card) connected to the modem/router?

Please, post the output of:
Code:
ifconfig
and the output of
Code:
route
