Most laptops (including your D810) have a green Wifi light to indicate when the wireless adapter/radio is operational, not when it's actually in range of something. Your laptop must be turned on for your wifi card to be functional. The "driving around" function you're talking about normally requires software that runs on the laptop. The software monitors your wireless adapter to determine when a suitable signal or network is in range. Your wireles adapter by itself isn't smart enough to make determinations as to whether or not a wireless access point is close enough for proper association, coordinate security settings, and decide if it's able to connect successfully without the aid of software. So, if you're looking to drive around and connect to wireless hotspots, you should leave the laptop on in the car, and find yourself some war-driving software that gives you real-time wireless statistics and more options for finding and connecting to wireless networks.
