Re: new desktop

In the specs on http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/review/gaming-pcs/eclipse-supernova-i5r285oc-desktop-gaming-pc-review-3605090/ I read nothing about WiFi. That's quite common in a desktop, to come without WiFi. I think you can call that a "known issue" indeed.

It might be better once you installed the right hardware and the drivers that came with it.

Moreover, gaming via WiFi generally is not recommended (too slow). Better do it via an Ethernet cable. But that's your own choice, crippling a new gaming PC by using WiFi.

Same finding.

Didn't find WiFi as a feature. For gaming I'd stick wired for stability. WiFi has variable response times so gamers hate it sometimes.
