Just installed on my laptop but im getting no gui, have no network connection (wireless) and only a usb dvd drive

i think something went wrong during installation, the last thing i did was hit install ubuntu-desktop, then it restarted and i was in shell. With no network i cant do anything i cant boot from the dvd again either because its an external drive and my laptop wont boot from usb i was able to the 1st time using wubi

im a bit lost in shell nothing i try seems to work.
