Hi

no , there is no Wifi Card

HP Pavilion p2-1113w Desktop PC Product Specifications

But if  you have a wifi key, you should connect to wifi
you must see with the dealer of this key, if does not work!
Do you have networks detected, is wifi enabled at your Fai / box ?

Would it make a difference if i used and ethernet cable first then tried to connect wifi?  I had wifi connected to my old desktop with the same  wifi adapter, i tried using the same adapter but it stated it was unsigned. Thanks

sorry I do not understand
But if the wifi adapter does not work, on the pc cannot connect to Wifi

There are many models and at different prices
You have to make a choice, You just have to look if it is compatible with the installed system (windows 10 / or at least windows 😎

Examples :

https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-wireless-network-Adapter-SoftAP/dp/B008IFXQFU/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=wif...

https://www.amazon.com/BrosTrend-1200Mbps-Adapter-Wireless-Antennas/dp/B01IEU7UZ0/ref=sr_1_19?keywor...

These are just examples in order to see the difference, you have to search, depending on the price, and from sellers, computer sites of your choice!
