Sadly many (all?) modern Wi-fi devices have no support for the
Linux-libre kernel.  See

It is lilkely that you can press Ctrl+Alt+F3 in the Guix installer and
then run “lspci” to see which device you have for networking.

Many approaches are possible.  Either:

1) Get a Wi-fi device (for example, a USB Wi-fi dongle) that is
   supported on Linux-libre.  See <>.

2) Use a cable connection instead of wi-fi.

3) Use a kernel with support for your Wi-fi device.  Guix does not
   support such kernels.

4) Use Guix on a foreign distribution.
