to get the Toshiba software modem to work as i would like to stop having to run dual boot with Windows XP and just run Linux on my laptop

Check this link for a lot of stuff.

Look here for info on drivers for the D-Link card.

you might also look at using ndiswrapper and the windows driver for that wireless card
