Hi- I upgraded to Lion and now I can't get wifi. Most of my programs are now super slow- i am very frustrated. Spent 2 hrs with AppleCare who were not able to help me.

Suggestions on what I should do?

You might want to reinstall Lion but this time do a clean install rather than upgrade from Snow Leopard. Be sure to backup all your data first.

Oh boy. I have no idea to do that. I bought the software from the app store and just followed the instructions. I did this so I could utilize iCloud and use the wireless syncing.....now I can't even get even use my computer!

Download Lion again.

Go into the App Store, hold down Option and hit Purchases, click on the Lion icon and a download should start. There is no charge. Then follow the instructions below and burn to a thumb drive. Reboot from the thumb drive, go into Utilities > Disk Utilities > Erase and format Mac OS Extended, into Partition and select GUID, then back to the installer and proceed.

If there is any applications or utilities you wish to save, back up to an external hard drive which is a must have these days.
