13' Macbook Air Wifi Hardware Not Installed after water spill

Hello everyone,

I have a 13' Macbook Air (10.8.2) and last week, I spilled water on top of the keyboard. However, I had a keyboard cover on it and immediately wiped the water on top away. It continued working for 10 minutes. I walked away for 45 minutes only to have my computer not working anymore, and realized there was some water that went underneath the computer. I put it in rice for 96 hours and tried to turn it on. I was excited to see that it worked, but the Wi-Fi is not working. It has the "wifi hardware not installed" error. I'm thinking this is probably something caused by the water.. Do you guys think that just the Airport/Wireless board is damaged or should I worry about the (expensive) logic board too? I have Applecare, which I realize is void because of water, but should I take my computer in to the Apple Store and say that my wifi is not working?

I don't know what to do! Please help out, thank you!
