Do you have all of your drivers installed?

Check device manager and see what devices have yellow exclamation marks next to them.

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5

on the cd the first scren should have a couple options... well idk bout win 7 but there might be a link that says install aditional components and install .net framework and u probably will have to have the right driver for your u connect via ethernet or wifi? try pluging it in to ethernet i(if u connect with wifi)because the wireless maanagers are the last thing to come on an instalation disk...well with xp at least..---------------------sorry didnt see ur post right..well if u have a nother computer just go to google and type your model of computer and "lan driver for win 7" and "wifi driver for win 7 " and download the two files and put them on a flash drive and install them that way...iv had to do it a million times...but .net framework still might not be installed either
