3 Ways to Get WiFi on a Desktop PC


hey welcome guys since we're gonna teach

you how to get Wi-Fi on a desktop

computer now a desktop computer is

designed to be stationary it's not

really meant to be moved around

I'm gonna teach you three ways on how to

get Wi-Fi on it I mean you never know

when you have to move that computer

around maybe you have an old one you

wanna salvage but you don't have a

direct Ethernet connections so you need

Wi-Fi enabled it's really easy so we

start with the easiest concept move over

to the more difficult ones later on so

the easiest way to get Wi-Fi on a

desktop or laptop that might have a

broken Wi-Fi adapter is this yeah this

tiny little thing right here is actually

a Wi-Fi adapter all it is if you'd open

it up is a USB Wi-Fi adapter it's pretty

simple concept right it but it works

pretty well especially if a good Wi-Fi

signal from your router so the idea is

basically this would plug it in and if

you have a newer version of Windows like

say Windows 8.1 and newer especially

Windows 10 they knew where the computer

the better it's most likely gonna pull

in those drivers install it

automatically so you can get Wi-Fi

nearly instantly if it doesn't be sure

to read the instruction manual that

comes with your Wi-Fi USB adapter in

fact sometimes if it doesn't the drivers

will be on the same USB adapter so

you'll have the drivers on here the

software that you need to make it run

the next method to get Wi-Fi on a

desktop computer involves you to be just

a tiny bit tech savvy just a little bit

more confidence factor it's basically a

PCI motherboard adapter the idea behind

this is I can open up your desktop case

you're gonna take this Wi-Fi adapter

plug into a PCI slot and well install

the drivers as I mentioned earlier with

the Wi-Fi adapter - same concept from

there on out it usually comes with an

antenna that you can hook up at the back

this does help with Wi-Fi performance a

little bit better than it would with

Wi-Fi adapter on a USB of course because

we get slightly better strength in the

wireless range now the final one is a

bit more complicated actually it's

fairly complicated if you're not that

tech-savvy and it usually involves a

method of when you're rebuilding a

computer from scratch or if you're

building a new one from scratch now the

reason I say this is because some

motherboards especially higher end ones

do allow for the additional option to

get Wi-Fi built into them but if you

have an existing

doesn't really help you unless you're

rebuilding it from scratch that means

all your parts have to be compatible or

if you're building a computer from

scratch it really means you're pretty

tech savvy to start with but these

motherboards yes do come with a Wi-Fi

adapter built inside and sometimes they

allow for an additional attachment you

can put on for additional range like my

motherboard does so that's three methods

on how to get Wi-Fi on a desktop

computer so hope you found this video
