Can I Connect this Motherboard to the Internet?

So, this is my first time buying and building a PC(I'm a total noob). The motherboard I am interested in buying is called "ASRock-AB350 Gaming-ITX/ac Mini ITX AM4 Motherboard". The question is how or can I even connect this to the internet? I can't use an ethernet cable because my mom said no. So does it connect to the internet on its own or do I have to buy a WiFi card? Is this thing even compatible with a WiFi card?

    Yes, it has built in WiFi.

    Now...Since this is your 'first time', and this is not a usual motherboard for a first timer...care to tell us all your other parts?

    OK, just checking. That is a reasonable low cost system.
    Don't expect uber frame rates in games, but it is OK.
    No glaring faults.

    ... apart from using a 300W PSU.

    Better replace that with a 450W, to have some buffer ... 300W with a GTX 1060 3G is too tight.

    The price difference between the 300W model and the 450W model is exactly 10 bucks, on Newegg.
    Best 10 dollars you ever spent.
