You need to first make sure that you have a wireless NIC installed on the desktop.
You need to make sure the wireless NIC is enabled in Device Manager.
You need to make sure you have the drivers for this wireless NIC up to date and installed.
You should make sure you are using WPA2 security with AES encryption in your routers settings for the wireless connection. Of course you will need an SSID "name for wireless network" and that you have a wireless password set up.
You need to make sure those settings are reflected in the profile for the wireless connection under Manage Wireless Connection in the Network and Sharing section in Windows.
