    As suggested in the previous replies, you'll need to connect to the Internet using an Ethernet cable ("Wired" network connection) and then use Additional Drivers to install the driver for your wireless adapter.

    I was connected via a cat5 cable. I figured it out and fixed it. Thank you for your help though!

    It depends on the device. If it's a Broadcom, then:
