I followed your instructions as follows:- I pressed 'e' and 4 lines
appeared, root, kernel, initrd and quiet. Selected the line starting
kernel pressed 'e' and added pci=noacpi to the end of the line. Pressed
enter and 'b'. After booting I checked the wireless connection which
still did not work. So, as precaution, I decided to remove the entry I
had made to the kernel line but, when I pressed 'e' and the line
appeared the entry I had made was not there. I wonder what I did wrong.

To check that the expression I wanted to add was there I added it
pressed enter followed by 'e' and it was there.
