How to connect DS18s games pc to wifi now we have super wifi?!

We have just had VM package installed with fast wifi connection at long last. However, my DS18 has a gaming PC which he has to connect via ethernet as his machine doesn't have any form of wifi connection. [I think DH has overlooked this small fact]. Now that we are all up and running, his PC won't connect and he is going mental as he uses his PC for a BTEC Games Design homework as well as minecraft commissions!

He has tried the TP-Link and a netgear box that we had before but they don't work any more.

Any advice on how we get him connected again please?

Does the new VM box have a network socket.

If not you'll need a wifi card for the gaming pc.

He may have to resync the TP lync to the new router (is it a new router?) - There is no reason I know of that means it shouldn't work, might just need re-freshed etc.

Retro fitting a wifi card should be easy enough or you can get a USB stick that will pick up the wifi too but this can be slightly less reliable.

Apparently some superhub have been replaced as the Ethernet ports don't work
