How old is the desktop?

 

Remember this is the latest greatest wifi6 some older wifi cards and devices cannot connect.

You need to dumb down the wifi Network → WiFi-Networks → 2.4GHz → Transmission Mode = n/g

Also you may have to change the name of the 2.4 and connect to that.

Give that a try.

You can plug the desktop in using the included CAT 6 cable to the ethernet ports of the gateway and the desktop computer.

If you don’t want to do that, and if your desktop has wifi, and some don’t, and it is Windows 10, just click on the connection icon (a circle/globe) in the status bar on the lower right and connect to your SSID name and password, and then it will remember it from then on.

If your desktop has no wifi, and you don’t want to use an ethernet cable, you can buy a USB wifi adapter. I got mine years ago on Ebay for like $2, but look on amazon and you can get one that has better reviews.
