Network Adapter - Dell Optiplex 7555

I have a refurbished Dell Optiplex 755 desktop, it doesn't have wifi.  Clicked on Device Manager and network Adapter and it doesn't have a wireless adapter.  Can a wifi adapter be downloaded?  Or do I need to get a wireless USB adapter?

Thanks!

 ,

You will need to purchase a usb wifi adapter to use with this computer. You cannot download a wifi adapter.

It will only have an Ethernet connection so you will need to purchase a Wireless USB dongle.
