Windows 7: Added wireless-n usb to my home desktops, can I discover wireless dev?

Added wireless-n usb to my home desktops, can I discover wireless dev?

Can I discover wireless devices now? Whenever I click add a device, nothing ever shows up. My laptop
has built in wi-fi and bluetooth capability and it has discovered devices, but my desktop computers which have no native wi-fi or bluetooth capability have never discovered a device, even after adding wireless usb devices and creating a wireless connection to the router. paj692
