Hi Zini , have you looked at the website Support for NP-R720E SAMSUNG ,It could be the intel, realtek or atheros wireless card you have , what was the original operating system that was installed when you bought the laptop new ? that information may enable us to determine the original device installed

I bought it with vista x32 but then got windows 7 x64. And now im sure i never downloaded any drivers when i think off it :/ Something maybe messed up upon the new installation i made ? :/

1- Press start, in search tab type "network and sharing center" then enter, at the left press "change adapter settings", if you see "Wireless Network Connection" right click then enable.
OR
2- Press start, type "device manager" then enter, under "network adapters" check if you have a wireless adapter or a yellow triangle beside it, if so right click "update driver software".
Good luck
