The answer to your question is yes an ethernet card is the same as a network card, is just a different way of referring to it that's all.

When you say "Would my ethernet card fit into my network card" I assume what you are really asking is would it fit into your computer, the answer is yes assuming that you have the correct type of slot in your computer, that said however you have no need to swap the card, the new card you have is more likely faster than the one in your old computer.
