Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

That is an ordinary ethernet card which can only work if you link it by cable to a MODEM or router. To go wireless, you need a PCI wireless network adapter - or PCIe for the most recent motherboards - or a USB powered wireless dongle. If you buy the latter, plug it in a front USB Port or it will have to fight against the metal case for a signal if it's in the back end.
