Is there a wireless board for this desktop. It has an ethernet connection now. I'm looking for an alternative because I am going all wireless

I have old ones that work very nice for me.

 

They are not AC models though.

 

This is the model I use on 3 of my HP desktop PC's running W10.   They might be hard to find nowadays.

This looks like a newer model that is AC capable and has good reviews...

Hi:

 

I think the easiest thing to do would be to purchase an external USB wifi adapter.

 

In order to install an internal card that would have been an option in your PC, you would also have to purchase and install the antennas, and I have no idea where you need to place them.

 

They have to be mounted in a certain location within the case for best reception.

 

If you want an internal card, they sell PCIe x1 cards you can install that have external antennas.
