Before I install Android-86 on a PC, it tested it on the bootable USB. It could
not connect to my Wi-Fi and I had 2 sources for it to find when scanning.
No hardware connection eirther.

This is a Linux operating system.

Is this possible to get to work and scan for my Wi-Fi? I used the 64 bit Android-86
with the UEFI and not the 32 bit Legacy. Windows 10 works fine with Wi-Fi and hardwared internet. An Asus motherboard. The driver needed must not be in the
installation package.

So the first step would be to identify the wifi chip and lan chip in your motherboard. Then obtain the linux drivers for those chips. Then obtain instructions on how to add those drivers to your installation.

USB 2.0
Realtek RTL8188FTV wireless LAN 802.11n

Hopefully, I will have USB 2.0 with a driver so that is not the problem
with the fresh installation of Android-86.

Looks like Linux. Other Linux OS are supported, but I did not
see Android-86 listed with the Linux drivers for Wi-Fi.

android-86.org

is where I downloaded the .iso file. I have it on a USB storage drive and
booted it this far.

At least it boots. On newer hardware like mine with a 11900K cpu Android-86 and most newer linux versions will not boot since they can't connect with the integrated graphics. Some linux distros at least come with a compatibility mode which allows standard graphics. For wifi, at least some linux distros like the latest Ubuntu will work with Intel's new AX210 or something really old like a TP-Link WN822N usb 2 adapter, which was a broadcom chip. But with a Realtek adapter they rely on the companies that buy their chips and resell devices with them to provide drivers. You could try this site:

which has one version of a 8188 driver and see if that helps.
