Question which wireless adapter do i buy?

Mar 31, 2020
i have an hp that was given to me and it’s a windows 8. it says there are no networks available so i did the troubleshooting and it said i needed an ethernet cable to connect to the internet. i don’t want to hardwire my computer into my router so i’d like an alternative. i tried every single trick i’ve seen on the internet after rephrasing my question a million times and looking it up. i bought a wireless bluetooth adapter and the drivers are installed ( i think ) but i still can’t get it to connect. i’m almost positive i bought the wrong adapter but i really need some help so i can order the right one and get my school work done during the corona break.
