    Help me please!!!!


    For some oddball reason, my computer will only recognize an ethernet connection. It wont even give me the chance to connect to a wireless network. It doesnt even give me the option.

    You need extra hardware to establish a wi-fi connection from a desktop.

    Your motherboard description mentions nothing about wireless here:
    RAMPAGE IV EXTREME - Motherboards - ASUS

    You motherboard manual make reference to a wireless LAN card but nothing else.

    Onboard LAN cards (Ethernet (802.3)) are different to Wireless Cards (802.11b/g/n/ac). Both a form of NICs (Network Interface Cards) but not the same
