Have you installed additional drivers for wifi? If not, get a temporary wired internet connection and install it. you can install it by searching additional drivers in unity or by using gksu jockey-gtk command.

Press the start button on your keyboard and type additional drivers, select the additional drivers application, you'll get a window like the one shown below. install your wifi driver in there.
