Firstly - assuming you logged into the Ubuntu desktop it is possible your graphics hardware does not support Unity you should have seen a screen message come up to state your hardware does not support Unity - if in fact that is the case.
Restart the computer and select Ubuntu Classic at the login screen, this should give you a usable desktop using GNOME then open a terminal and type the following
If you get a response like below you should be able to run Unity;
If you get a yes response you may have to enable the restricted drivers for your graphics card.
If you get a no response you can install Unity 2D:
Log out then select Unity2D at the login screen.
Secondly - When you say "cannot find the wifi" do you mean your access point or the wifi does not work on the laptop??
