Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

Would like to know if the PC desktop has an in-built Wi-Fi card, and if yes how do I activate it?

 

And if it does not have a Wi-Fi card, what is the best and cheapest way of linking the PC to Wi-Fi?

 

Kind Regards,

Its specs

 

                 https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c03544621

 

It has

  • Ethernet (RJ-45): Realtek RTL8171E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (standard)
  • Wireless:
    • 802.11b/g/n PCIe x1 (optional)
    • 802.11b/g/n mini card (optional)

Did you buy one of the above options ? If not, it does not have wifi card/adapter and antenna

 

You can use PCIe wifi with antenna adapter or USB wifi adapter with antenna ...

 

Regards.

BH
