Network adapter missing.

Hi, I need urgent help please. So I installed windows 8, I originally had windows 7 home premium. I dint have a win 7 disk so I had to download a torrent and install win 7 again, it all went well until I tried connecting to my wifi. It's says "Windows could not find a driver for your network adapter" it's been like this for weeks, what can I do ?! Please help. I'm using a Toshiba satellite A665 - S6050 windows 7 home premium x64 bit.
