How do I add my desktop computer to my internet connection? Does not have a WiFi. I've always used it to do offline writing.

You should be able to connect an ethernet cable between the computer and the router. An ethernet cable looks like a phone cord, but has 8 pins, or connection points. Else you would need to add a wireless card or Wireless USB device to your desktop so it can connect to your existing wireless network.

 

I recommend a wired connection whenever possible, as it is (usually) faster. You can also connect other devices to share the network between all your computers: Printers, Backup drives, security cameras, and many other devices.

You can add a wifi card.  Personally, I use one of these affordable USB  dongles...
