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.
