Solved How do I make my PC connect wired not wireless? Tags: Wireless Connection Systems Last response: January 6, 2014 6:00 PM in Systems Share Treeroy January 6, 2014 2:32:30 PM I used to be on wired rather than wireless, however I have upgraded my motherboard today and it's refusing to connect wired. More to the point, I don't know how to make it connect via ethernet. In Network Connections, it only displays "WAN miniport (PPPOE)", "Edimax 802.11n Wireless Card" and "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Minport Adapter #2". With the old motherboard, I had more options. I can't connect via the "WAN miniport". So how do I do wired?
