Exclamation graphic card and wireless card problems?!!?!??!?

Hi All

ive just bought a (second hand) graphics card (NVIDIA 5200FX)

and about a month ago i bought a ASUS WL-138G V2 wireless lan card.

ive had the wireless card working great for the past month in the pci slot.
I was sick of onboard graphics. so yesterday i put in my recentley bought graphics card (AGP).
i started up the computer and was amazed with what the graphics card had done with my screen. so the first thing i did was try going on the internet, but soon relized that my wireless card wasnt picking up my modem.
i tryed installing the drivers again but that didnt help. soon enough i was taking out my graphics card and testing my internet connection. and to my suprise it was working fine (using onboard graphics). so i put my graphics card back in to see if it had somehow fixed itself, but got the same results.

please someone tell me what i have done wrong.

and im running Windows XP

hmm thats weird...
maybe you have to do something in your bios.
so go into your bios, which i am not sure which button since all mobos have different ones (mines DEL)
anyways, just play around in the bios and see if you come across anything with graphics and internet, pci, or those plug and play things.
my friend bought a usb thing for a pci slot, didnt work, till he went into the bios, and enabled something.
sorry that i am not that much help
