Adding WiFi to HP EliteDesk G2 TWR that does not seem to have WiFi built-in

I have HP EliteDesk G2 TWR with motherboard specs per below. I need to have WiFi as a back-up to existing LAN hardwired internet connection. It does not seem to have WiFi as option built-in. I bought Netgear Model A7000 AC1900 WiFi USB adaptor, and i installed software etc,,, but that does not seem to work either. Per motherboard specs below there would appear to be two open slots available.

1. Any suggestions as to getting the external WiFi USB adaptor that I already bought to work?

2. or do I need to get/install some sort of PCI wifi adaptor/card?
Or what... help?

Wi-Fi

On HP's laptop, the wi-fi module disappeared. The drivers are in place, the device works fine, but there is no way to turn on. Shows one mode "on the plane" and all. how do I get it back?
