Can my desktop do wireless WiFi?

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 590-p0053w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My apartment has one coaxial cable hookup in the wall for internet service.  I would like to relocate my desktop Pavilion 590-p0053w downstairs where there is no wall cable hookup.  My question is, is it possible to acquire a router and connect it to the cable modem and wirelessly have it connect to my desktop in another area of the apartment?

 

 

Thanks.

Hi:

 

According to the product specs for your notebook, your PC has built in wifi capability, so you can go forward with your plans.

Even if it didn't, you could have easily added a USB wifi adapter and gotten wireless that way.
