Goto Device Manager. Post screenshot.
Most important now is ... what's listed at network adapters.

Most win7 drivers download/install automatically. But first you need to have a network connection of course

That's for a wired connection. Try to install that first. Attach a network cable. Works?
What wireless adapater do you have? Broadcom or Atheros?

How did you install win7 pro. Just an upgrade from win7 home premium, or clean install? Drivers are somewhere on win7 home premium partition normally.
You still have an partition called PQSERVICE?
