    Just continue and it will download and reinstall the OS via Internet Recovery.

    Internet recovery over a wireless connection will be quite slow, and can easily take several hours.
    If you can plug an ethernet cable directly to your router - that will be much faster :D

    Then, choosing to connect to Apple's servers through a wireless connection will be slow.
    Wait for it.

    If this is a work network, with a proxy server setup, then connecting to Apple's servers will fail. This page will help you decide if your network setup should work for internet recovery.

    If the Mac can be close enough to hardwire, chances are the wireless signal will be strong enough that it should be no slower than hard-wired. There are VERY few home broadband plans that can fully saturate a good wireless network.

    installer

    If you are going to an Apple provider, consider taking with you an 8GB or more SD card or USB thumb drive. You can ask them to also make you an installer. They'll probably know how already (the UNIX commands are built into the installer software). Partition the media as GUID, and format it as Mac OS X Extended (Journaled).
