Yeah your Desktop Only Has a Built in LAN Adapter which is what SIW was showing you, and Your Laptop Obviously Has One so if you really want the internet on your desktop Pc there are two ways, Buy yourself a Wireless adapter or Use your Laptop as an Access Point though the First is a much Better option.

Sorry Buddy
And Good Luck

You will Be able to plug it straight in and install the software that comes with it, connect to the network and your then sorted without the need for HardWire... although you may need to Download up to date drivers so you should keep your laptop on hand.

When your looking for an adapter make sure it has the Windows 7 Certified stamp to stop any problems occuring...
