Re: Idea Centre desktop wifi will not connect to wifi

hi nmcreatrix,


Welcome to the Forums.


Upon checking the MTM: 5316-2HU, as per this merchant, the product doesn't appear to have a wireless adapter. Also, the Realtek PCIe FE is an ethernet controller. 


Can you try to:

1. Open Device Manager (press Windows Key+R > type devmgmt.msc) then naviate to the Network Adapters and seeif you have a wireless adapter listed

2. If you don't find any wireless adapter, see if there's an "Other Device > Network Controller".

   - if there is, the wireless driver is not installed, try to get the hardware ID and paste it here (see this guide). Otherwise, the machine most likely doesn't have a wireless card installed.



Hope this helps
