Okay, my first question would be: do you need it connected via wi-fi due to its proximity to the router, or will the PC be sited close by? If it's the latter, you'd be better off using Ethernet because of the faster connectivity afforded by this route. If you want to proceed with a wi-fi connection, what happens when you try to connect? Do you see the SSID for your network, try to connect, and then enter the password? If so, what happens after this? Do you control the router or does it belong to someone else?

Insert before loclomonder's Wi-Fi questions: does the computer have Wi-Fi capability? :)

I would rather have a wifi connection because I only got one Ethernet wire in my room and I share rooms with my sibling he likes to use the Ethernet for his PS4 so I don’t like swapping all the time.

So my wifi does show up in connections when I click on it the password box comes up and then when I enter the password it loads and it says connecting and then a error message pops up just saying I am unable to connect, I also control the router btw

If the router has a spare port you could just get another Ethernet cable.
