If it's not detecting wireless in range, it's likely the pounding has damaged the wifi radio card in the laptop. It might simply be out of it's connector on the main board or, unfortunately, it may have to be replaced... In either case I'd recommend a trip to the service depot.
While you're at it, you might also want them to check the keyboard as well.
