The computer is running Win 8.1 Pro, and the appropriate driver for the adapter has been installed. The problem is this-- the periphery receiver prevents the Wi-Fi adapter from working.
I am confident in saying this because, when building my own computer with the same adapter some time ago, I had to substitute a wired mouse for the Logitech Unifying Receiver which I had been using prior. Only then could my computer be given an IP address. N.B. the Dell receiver is an implementation of Logitech technology.
As it is, the computer recognizes only one of the several networks which reach into the room. When I connect to it, in informs me that the connection is limited. I cannot ping, tracert, or use the Web.
I'd like to know if I can change either receiver so that one does not interfere with the other.
