Hi, and thanks for using JustAnswer.com.

According to the specs, the wireless/wifi networking is optional for this model:
http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/2010/acer/Aspire/AspireM3201/AspireM3201sp2.shtml

You can check: click on Start, then right-click on Computer, then click on Manage, then click on Device manager, then open/expand Network adapters and see if there is a wireless/wifi item (or let me know the item(s) under it; also , let me know if there is an problem/yellow item).

Please let me know. Thank you.

That means the desktop has your wireless / wifi hardware. But you can easily get a USB wireless adapter (about $15 from your local computer store or online) and connect it to the desktop, then you can get wireless / wifi on the desktop;
