Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

To connect wirelessly, you need a wireless adapter which can either be in the form of a card that fits one of your PCI slots on the motherboard or, and more simple to fit, a USB dongle which plugs into a USB port - preferably on the front of the machine.

Whichever you choose, aim for a Wireless N standard - that will future proof you for a year or so until the next big thing comes along.
