Set up Amazon Echo (Alexa) from an ethernet-connected desktop PC

Hello,

How do you set up Amazon Echo (Alexa) from an ethernet-connected desktop PC?

I'm trying to set up a new Amazon Echo with the Alexa web app but I'm not sure what to do next.  I'm running Windows 10 on a Desktop PC with an ethernet connection to the Internet.  I do not have a mobile phone but I do have a Wi-Fi signal which I use with my laptop.

The Amazon Echo  instructions refer to downloading the Alexa app but also have a link for browsers: http://alexa.amazon.com/spa/index.html#welcome. Following those steps led me to this screen:

But how do you get to Wi-Fi settings on a hardwire-connected desktop PC?  Here's where I went:

Am I even in the right neighborhood?

I'd like to ask Alexa how to do this but… :P

Thanks

Edit: Right now the Echo light ring is flashing purple.  Also, I do have a password for connecting to the Wi-Fi but I have not seen a screen which asks for it.

You really ought to do this setup on your laptop because it has wireless.  The instructions are for connecting its wifi directly to the Alexa.

Good suggestion Davis.  I don't know why it's so hard to access Wi-Fi info via a desktop PC but using the laptop did the trick.  Thanks
