Is this a laptop or a desktop machine? If a desktop, does it have a wireless card?

What operating system are you using on the computer?

Nope, you need to buy a PCIe wireless card.

Thanks for the help. I have pretty good internet so I'm going to go pick up a wireless adapter from Walmart. I'll try to go wired soon it would just take some work.
