Switch wireless network card

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?
1 Solution
cloning is not easy as the device's are different disable the built in wireless nic in the bios and then boot into windowsd and plug the usb nic in and let it install if this doesn't work remove the driver for the usb nic and try again that should work
What OS?  from network connections disable the #1.  Check the #2 has netbios enabled and also if later than XP check your network location setting
