srivenigalla,

Drivers need to be installed in the correct order after a fresh install for the hardware to be work properly. Below is a link for installing the drivers in order. Not all drivers listed will be needed to install.

srivenigalla,

Which wifi card do you  have installed? Did you press the key combination on your keyboard to activate the bluetooth?
