Yes, the system saw it and it properly functioned; it connected to the
Internet using the wifi and downloaded stuff during installation. And
I have not changed the wifi card or laptop or anything like that ever
since; everything is same as it was during installation.

There is no "D-Link" output as such. But here is the wifi bit from the
lspci output:

02:02.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5212
802.11abg NIC (rev 01)
02:03.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.
RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
02:04.0 CardBus bridge: ENE Technology Inc CB1410 Cardbus Controller (rev 01)
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5005G
802.11abg NIC (rev 01)

During installation my wifi was detected as "ath1"

Thanks for your help.
