Most likely the wifi device built into your computer requires non-free 
firmware, which is not included with Debian.

Best option (from a Free Software standpoint) is to buy a wifi dongle 
which works with Free Software.  See e.g. https://wiki.debian.org/WiFi

Alternatively (if you don't mind the legal implications that comes with 
including non-free formware to your installation) look for the 
unofficial debian-installer image which includes non-free firmware.
