Hi

 

So you have some sort of Mish-Mash of software installed.

"comp said a newer version is installed"

So you have not done a clean install then?

 

Ralink Wireless Network Controller Driver Update

Do you have an Ethernet connection?

It is possible that the adapter has failed and needs replacing.

Since Omni desktop PCs have not been manufactured for quite a while, your best bet is to buy yourself a USB wifi dongle made for Windows 10.

 

That will get wifi on your PC.

 

Get yourself something on the order of an ASUS USB-AC56 if you want 802.11ac dual-band (2.4 & 5 GHz)capability.

 

Plug the dongle in, install the drivers, power it on and enter the password to your router's SSID and you will have wifi.
