Hello, I just ordered all the necessary parts for my very first PC build! :lol: Now I'm wondering how would I go about making my computer's internet wi-fi capable so I don't have to run ethernet cables all over my house? I bought this motherboard. Is this a feature that's generally already included with the motherboard or would I have to get a WLAN card?

I see no mention in the literature that that board has wifi.  It's not something they would hide away... it would be pretty visible in the product info.

 

This is what you will want:  An internal wifi adapter card

 

That was just the first one I saw... there are many brands of course.   

Just make sure you have one that can handle your router speeds.

 

Others will likely have more opinions.

I've used these and I've used the type that plug into a rear USB port.   They both did fine.
