Sony touchpads can usually be made to work by adding the boot option:

i8024.nopnp

Can you also give the output of:

sudo rfkill list; sudo lshw -C network

Also get full updates using a wired connection may help things

Problems solved, i used google to find a whole bunch of pre-existing issues that matched my own and kinda just went at it lol

Nice one dude, you probably just learned a WHOLE bunch of stuff about your OS too
