Well thats a pretty high spec machine for the money so well done. It should last a long time.

It's a tower machine so unlike a laptop which is usually wireless enabled for obvious reasons it is not specifically wireless enabled.

It has got a LAN inboard which usually means there is an Ethernet connection at the back which permits a network to be set up. The wireless boxes normally supplied require or prefer the Ethernet link for the wireless modem to work. In effect the tower connection is wired unless you connect a wireless adaptor to the Ethernet.

If I have got this right say no wireless adaptor to him but say there is Ethernet. (do check your instructions first re Ethernet)
