Motherboards with wifi capabilities

When I use the filter on Z87 Motherboards, only the highly priced motherboards show up. Do cheaper mobos not come with a wireless network function?

Most do not, WiFi on board is mostly common to mini ITX builds due to the lack of expansion slots.

I see. ATX boards typically don't come with Wifi then?

Most of them don't since they give you more than enough PCI slots to install one
