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.

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
