Welcome to Seven Forums.
Go here: MSI Global - Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Motherboard, Graphics and more 32 and get the Realtek LAN driver and install it. you will have to find out which WLAN card you system has by looking in Device manger. Connect to the net with Ethernet. Then run Windows Update to see if it will find the WLAN driver.

You can download all the newest WLAN drivers and try to install, it should reject the wrong ones.
