    In the terminal type

    lspci | grep -i wireless

    this will tell you what kind of wireless you have if it is detected

    for Broadcom WIFI in Synaptic Package Manager search for

    firmware-b43-installer and bcmwl-kernel-source and install both

    If you do not have Synaptic Package Manager installed in the Terminal
    Type

    sudo apt-get install synaptic

    If it is a Broadcom which I suspect it is these two files should fix your problem after installed reboot
