Hello Debian,

I am trying to install Debian 9 on my desktop but within the install I am not given a Wifi Option. Can you please help me with this issue?

Thank you,

These are my specs:
HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop 690-0010
AMD Ryzen 3 2200G Processor
8 GD DDR4-2666 SDRAM memory
1 TB hard drive
AMD Radeon RX 550 graphics card with 4 GB GDDR5 dedicated memory
DVD-Writer

Wireless LAN 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (1x1) and Bluetooth 4.2 M.2
  *^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^*

I am *not* familiar with any HP product.
A _superficial_ web search suggests that WiFi may be supplied by various on-board options or plugin cards.

What is providing WiFi on your specific hardware?
{ LAN 802.11 is the specification which it meets. NOT what it *is* ;/}
