wifi adapter

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My desktop only shows one wifi network.  I installed an extender with another wifi name but desktop doesn't see it.  Laptop does however. Do I need an external adapter to access the extender wifi network?

What model wifi card does your PC have?


Is the other wifi name on the 2.4 or 5.0 GHz wifi band?


Maybe the card in your desktop PC is only a single band wifi card.
