HP laptop 6710s, OS is Linux5, i want wireless router installed for internet via y-fi

I have a HP 6710s notebook/ laptop on which i have broadband connection via modem. But other than that I desire to access internet on my laptop via wireless router (DLink DIR-300) ie, by way of y-fi. The operating system on my laptop is Linux 5. When I access internet through the wireless router by way of a cable into my laptop, I am able to access net, but the moment I unplug that cable from my laptop, the internet connection gets disconnected, even though the wireless router is on. Kindly guide me as to how can i access net by using that wireless router mentioned above but without a cable ie, vide y-fi technique.
