How to tell if Desktop is WIFI capable???

I have a Pavillion 6000 Desktop.  How do I tell if this unit is WIFI enabled?

 

I'm wanting to use AT&T Mobile Hotspot Elevate 4G unit as my household internet device and don't know whether I can with this pc or not.  Out here in the sticks the only internet access available is Air Card and / or Satellite.  I would like to replace both of them with the AT&T mobile hotspot but don't know if pc will do it or not.

 

Thnx

Hi,

 

There are hundreads of models for this series, what is your model ? One way to check: look at the Device manager, under Network adapters. Can you see anthing called Wireless or Wi-Fi or similar in the following image ?
