You will need to identify the network devices that are present in your notebook's hardware.
Do you know how to use the Device Manager to identify devices? Open the device manager and then find the network devices and expand that section. Right-click on the network device without a driver and select properties. that will invoke the Window as seen below. Select the Details tab and use the Property dropdown arrow to choose hardware ids. the PCI\VEN character string is what we need to identify the device and then from there search to find a Windows 7 driver. (Is the installed Windows 7 a 32-bit or 64-bit variant?)
What is the installed CPU and chipset? You can use CPU-z to find that information.
