Shop for a wireless PCI card. Follow the instructions that come with it.

Pretty much any will do, so long as it's of the PCI variety and you have a free PCI slot in your computer. I would make sure that your OS is listed on the box though. It may still work even if it's not, but you'd have to download a driver update.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
