What is a conflict

Question

Heres my problem. I have a new GeForce fx 5200 AGP 128mb video card and a Linksys wireless-G PCI adapter. I nomally run my computer without the video card because my problem is this. When i try to put my video card into the AGP slot which fits fine and all. I turn on my computer and lose my internet connection. At first i thought it was the watts since i only had 180 but now i upgraded and have 400 but still the same problem. I can only have one plugged in because it messes up with the other. Geforce in and adapter stops working. Geforce out and adapter is working. Please help me out in any way possible i have already spent a lot of money for this paper weight of a video card and still have yet to use it for online gaming purposes.
