first try checking to see what wireless adapter you have. from a terminal type in

Code:
lspci -v
then paste that output. you can also try this from the terminal

Code:
ifconfig -a
if using gnome you might also try NetworkManager applet.

The kernel module (driver) for your card is not the correct one or not installed. You may need to get wired internet access to do download the appropriate ones or DL the appropriate ones to your Win7 partition then mount it in Linux and install the packages from there.
