Will wireless adapter for a desktop work with router set up by DSL on same compu

I have an HP SR2170NX desktop set up via DSL and cable to an ATT gateway router that enables wireless for my roaming with my laptop. The laptop works wirelessly even when the cable between the router and desktop is unplugged and the desktop turned off. I would like to equip the desktop with a Cisco-Linksys WMP54G Wireless-G PCI Adapter or similar PCI-card to allow for elimination of the cable between the router and the computer. Is this possible?

    Unfortunately, I tried to use the Linksys automatic set-up and failed to get the card to work in that way. Then I spent a lot of time looking for information on Linksys without success. Finally I decided to try a manual configuration and that worked. Unfortunately, I did not record details of my specific actions to list them here. Thanks.
