I am looking to purchase the HP Omen 880-177c gaming desktop.  It does not have an Ethernet card.  It has wireless-AC WLAN + BT 4.2.  I am not familar with the wireless AC WLAN.  Is it faster than wired Ethernet?

Welcome to the forum @TexasTammy

 

That model comes with Realtek RTL8161 "1000BASE-T Ethernet" built-in to the motherboard.

 

If you can, use the Eithernet. "Much faster"

The port is on the back:
