Custom build Puget PC with an Asus M.B Z87-A, 8GB Ram,W.D. 500 gb hard drive; (160 gb hd; 750 gb hd-both secondary, storage only).

 

 

I would appreciate information on what I need to be able to use wireless headphones on the above computer. This computer does not use wi-fi connection. It is

connected to my router via cable.  

 

Thanks,

When I get to bluetooth & other devices I don't find any indication of wi-fi for  headphones: I have wi-fi from a router in the house for laptops and cell phones. This PC computer doesn't provide wi-fi to any device; everything that this pc feeds is by cable.  I haven't purchased (actually earbuds) yet. I wanted to first determine if this pc is even wi-fi capable and if not, how to correct that.

I forgot to mention in my first post that this pc is running Win 10 pro.

Hello,

 

It does not look as though your motherboard is wireless ready, you have a few options.

 

1 You can get a usb wifi  adapter . I don't recommend those lost connections an problems like that.

 

2 Install a wifi adapter network card on the motherboard, more expensive but works better.

 

Finally, depending on your motherboard’s configuration and how much other hardware you’ve stuffed inside your system, you might not have room for a dedicated PCIe wifi adapter network card. If so, it’s back to a USB adapter for you.

 

something like this

The card is what I prefer. I have had these in computers years ago. When I have a chance to open the case and look around I will look into purchasing a card   If I need further assistance and if this topic is still open, I'll try to get back to you.

 

Thanks for the advice.

Hi,

 

To connect wireless headphones or earbuds those devices use Bluetooth not Wifi! you can buy a small USB adapter that add Bluetooth support to the machine
