First install: Boot-Up Manager (BUM)
Then open the terminal: Ctrl + Alt + T, then run: sudo bum.
Make sure your wifi is enabled to run (at boot-up).
The reboot.
If your wifi still doesn't start at boot up:
open the dash and type start and click on Startup Applications. Click the add button and:
"Name"= start wifi
"Command"= rfkill unblock all
