you should tell what wlan interface you have.
some wlan interfaces like zdyas install automatical and are not very expensive.

I have the same problem. I run Ylmf OS 3.0 from USB. All is fine, but the system do not see my WiFi device. I run Ylmf OS 3.0 on HP Compaq nx6310, which has build-in WiFi - Broadcom BCM 4311. Could anybody advice me?

If I am not wrong, Zydas is chipset, not adapter. Could you please advise which adapter would be most suitable?
