    How do connect to the built in WiFi adaptor?


    I have always connected to the internet via a external USB WiFi adapter. Now I need to connect to the one that is built in to my mother board. I went to Device Manager and Enabled it, but it isn't discovered. Do I need to do something else.

    And when I connect to it, finally, how do I make sure its a 'private' network and not public.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Okay, got the adapter working, but it seems to be only for Ethernet. How do I also set it up for WiFi? My access point is a Netgear AC1750 C6300 moden/router.

    Here is what I get when I try to change the network from public to private:

    IPv6 address:
    IPv6 DNS Servers:
    2001:558:feed::2
    IPv4 address: 192.168.0.28
    IPv4 DNS Servers: 75.75.75.75
    75.75.76.76
    Manufacturer: Realtek
    Description: Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller
    Driver version: 10.1.505.2015
    Physical address: ‎

    I redacted some addresses. The options below do not appear when I click on properties.
