Hello studman97 Welcome to the Seven Forums!
What type of connection do you have there? That will be a help in solving this rather quickly. Are you plugging a usb cord, ethernet RJ-45 cord, or running a wireless type connection?
The two places to start are the Device Manager>Network devices and in the Control Panel>Network & Sharing Center for using the network troubleshooting tool as well as checking off the automatically detect settings box found in the Internet Explorer options>connections tab.
