Hi Welcome to JustAnswer.com I am Tech Specialist and today, I will be trying my best to solve your issue.
What is the model of the desktop?
you will have to wait so i can find it
Yes I am waiting
Take your time
I don't want to connect by ether cable.....wireless
ok, I will check whether this desktop have wireless functionality first of all
..it says it does... maybe that is a windows default answer. if not im screwed
I don't think it does have a wireless capability
modem is no where nere this comp
Can you open device manager pls?
WTF!! i thought thay all do
it say....turn on the toggle switch
Desktops usually does not have wireless
Can you open the device manager, we can check from there
hold mon...I have to move this laptop over to that new comp.
I think it has wireless capability unlike other desktops, I read it somewhere
ok...where is devise man?....i HATE windows 8
...cant never find anything
Take the mouse cursor to top right, click on magnifying glass
in search type device manager and press enter
says..."no apps meet your search"
type in search devmgmt.msc and try
that searches for apps...
found device man...
expand network controllers
what is under it?
just lost divice adat....got to find it again
any help ???? where is device man????
I searched again....Says No app
search for this
ok back to dev man...
intel(r)82579v Gigabit network connector
microsoft kernal debug network adapter
inttel(r)82579v gigabit network CONNECTION....not connector as i type above
only 1 device listed?
it says to TWO line that i already typed to you
......kernal debug network adaptor
I don't think any wireless adapter is there
It should show something like Intel Pro Wireless in device manager if there would any present
there is the one listed under adaptors thAT i just wrote to you
I think I missed that, I got disconnected while you were replying
it says....intel(R)82579V Gigibit NETWORK CONNECTION
That is for the wired connection
I'm f'd then.....I assumed all came equiped.... My old damn ptinter/fax/copier in wireless
You can buy a cheap wireless adapter
Will hardly cost $10-15
You mean other than the one I already have???
connects to the desktop?
No I mean to enable wireless in desktop
Yes you should be able to connect it via USB
I know what you mean
buy another one and do what with ti??
Connect it to desktop via USB
Most of them are plug and play
I have a commcast modem and wirelss router in the other room
I dont under stand......I plug a new router into my desktop tower?
I am not talking about buying a new router
Wireless adapter is something else
....and that will pick u[p the wireless router and moden it the other room?
It's a small device which can be plugged in to any computer
the adpater plugs into my a usb in my tower
and a wireless icon will show on the desktop
clicking on which will allow you to connect to wireless network
See this -> http://www.ebay.com/bhp/usb-wireless-adapter-for-desktop
then that sits next to this new comp and will pick up the home network?
It will be plugged to usb port, yes
like the tiny adapter i plugged in for my wireless keyboard and mouse?
Yes, these are tiny as well
Ok.....If that is what I gotta do...... That's sucks.... Ok...
I can understand.
Hope I was helpful. :-)
