    Did you write down your activation code ? I hope so...
    If this is the case, try to download windows 8 on another computer or have a friend of yours do it for you, BURN the image and have your computer start from the DVD drive and you should be able to perform a CLEAN installation.

    Google for Wireless Drivers for your model laptop (preferably from the site of the manufacturer) and install them.

    It is recommended that you re-install the system, or at the very least start a Repair session in order to make sure that your system has complete file integrity. You don't *know* what was omitted during the installation, you may be lacking certain services or vital configuration files and it might surface in the (likely near) future.
