Have you checked to see if the wireless card is firmly plugged into the motherboard? It may have gotten jarred loose during the repair. Be sure to unplug the system from the wall and to ground yourself on the metal chassis before reaching inside of the case.
Once that's done, boot into Windows. Go to Start...Run...and type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Look for the Network Adapters and see if your wireless card is listed there. If it is, does it have a red X or yellow ! by it?
Next, go to Control Panel and click on Network Connections. Is your wireless connection shown there? What does it say about the connection there? Right click on it, and select Properties to see more details about the connection (in particular, check the properties of the TCP/IP - it should (most likely) be set on "automatic".
Do you have security setup on your wireless router? If so, have you entered the appropriate key to allow access?
Finally, open up your browser, select Tools, then Internet Options, then the Connection Tab, then the LAN settings button. Check to see if the proxy server is enabled. If it is, remove the check from the box and click OK
Let us know if any of this helps - if not there's more stuff to try.
