This Desktop does not have a wireless adapter installed. You can buy a wireless N PCI card and put it inside the case in an empty PCI slot, or (easier) just buy a USB wireless N adapter and plug it into a free USB port. PCI or USB wireless cards typically go for about $60 (Canada /USA) This will allow you to connect to wireless networks.
I know for a fact that a netgear router is compatible, because I have one but honestly any wireless router, regardless of brand, should work for you, provided it is set up correctly and your wireless card/adapter on you computer is setup correctly (i.e. drivers loaded, turned on, etc.). Let me know if you have any questions.
The wireless router needs its wireless settings configured and also the wireless card in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured with the router’s wireless settings so the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with the wireless router. To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: - 1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable. 2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address. 3. Enter the router setup, login and password 4. Change the admin password 5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast. 6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA). 7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router. 8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings. 9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router. 10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.
In order to make your desktop wireless, you will need to buy a wireless card for your computer. The wireless cards are available for PCI and USB ports for desktops in addition to PCMCIA ports for Laptopts in the market. I'd recommend to use a USB one and the PCI wireless card need to be connected to your motherboard whereas the USB one can be connected to any free USB port and you can easily plugin and plugout the same without having to open up the computer.
I am not sure which operating system you are using but you can purchase a wireless card for it. Click on the link below for an example. Make sure the one that you do get is compatible with your operating system as well as your wireless signal (A, B, G, or N).

Are you sure there is no wireless device in the machine? Picking up a wireless connection in a desktop without a wireless device is a bit of an impossibility. Do you have a cellular device connected to the computer? Some of the cell wireless cards (Sprint for example) double as wireless cards for wifi hotspots. Many cell phones can be treated as wireless modems on your computer. Take another look and post back.
