how to connect via wifi

HP Recommended
EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

How do I connect my new HP PC to the internet via wifi? At the moment I'm connected through an ethernet cable but I need that cable for something else so i need to put thois PC on my wifi.

 

In settings, the wifi network doesn't automatically come up as an option.

Thanks. It seems odd don't you think that a new computer purchased in June 2017 wouldn't be able to connect to wifi? Is this odd? Is it not standard for any computer these days?  Is it just HP? (when I bought a MacBook and when i bought a tablet and when I bought my phone, all of these automatically have wifi capability).

Hi,

 

I don't know; but I believe this product is for business desktops on corporate LAN networks therefore no need to have wireless.

 

In my company, we have thousands of desktops (in the process switching to HP Thin Clients now) and they don't have wireless (including new thin clients).

 

For all other mobile devices, including laptops we all have wireless but by some reasons I don't know, we can only order laptops without Bluetooth. Our laptops only have small capacity SSD's because C: drives are locked, we can't write anything to C:

 

Regards.
