Start over and this time follow the steps for Clean Reinstall Windows 7.

The driver steps are printed in red so you can't miss them.

Go to the Support Downloads webpage for your PC or Ethernet/Wireless device's make/model to download the Windows 7 (or Vista if that's all they have) LAN/WAN drivers, install all until you get a connection icon in System Tray. Be sure to plug in by wire if using Ethernet driver.

If you can't do this then you shouldn't have reinstalled. You've probably badly blundered on other important steps so I'd start over at the top of Clean Reinstall Windows 7.

It explains how to determine this in Clean Reinstall Windows 7.

Pay attention to the steps printed in red so you can't miss them. These will explain how to find the driver, or even trace the hardware if it's not known to you using Hardware Identification .

On a Custom build you should know your network adapter's name if not model. These may be listed as Network Controller in the Device Manager with an error symbol next to one or both. If it doesn't reveal the make/model and you don't know it then trace it using the Hardware Identification tutorial above.
