From control panel choose Device Manager. Then check under Network adapters.

I believe you can ignore the 6T04 adapter warnings. The intel connection may be a wireless adapter. If this device is 'working properly' then you should be able to connect wirelessly once the correct connection is made.

Try control Panel -> Network and sharing centre. Then manage wireless networks and Adapter properties.
