I just bought a new HP Pavillion Slimline 5220 with Windows 7 for my mother. The quick setup guide shows that it has built-in wireless. When I go to the Device Manager it doesn't show any wireless devices under Network adaptors.
Does this system have an internal wireless card or do I need to purchase a USB wireless card? If it does include a wireless card, how do I enable it? If it doesn't, then why does the Quick Start show that it has built-in wireless?
Any help you can provide would be great!

Where did you buy the computer? You have either the S2250F or S2250Y if you live in the U.S. If you did not choose the wireless option during purchase then it does not have it. That is just an illustration in case you have wireless.
Look on the back and look for a small black box as you see in the photo on the back. If you do not see one then you don't have wireless.
