Switch wireless network card

DGPIS asked

On my notebook, the internal wireless has stopped working correctly and I switched to an external USB network adapter.
However, I cannot access the network Work Group anymore, nor see other computers on the internal network.
The card says it is linked to a the network name with a '2' after it..

I can switch back to the internal wireless, which does connect to the other computers (it just heats up the computer too much and messes up the video)

How can I 'clone' one wireless device to another?
