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?

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.
