Check that the touchpad isn't disabled in BIOS setup.
Browse the output of the command : dmesg | less
the touchpad should appear somewhere if it is enabled and not broken (synaptics probably, possibly Alps). Most touchpads are PS/2 devices and should work without any extra drivers.

for wireless card adapter, the manufacturer must provide the drivers, follow the instruction and install it.
