if you mean you installed w7 and, the ethernet doesn't work, you likely need to install the driver for it. You may have to go to the manufactures site and download them.

Response #1 is quite true and very important whenever installing a new operating system.
Note though that Windows 7 is NOT a program you can download (not legally), it needs to be purchased and installed. You might not have a legal copy and that can cause all kinds of problems, depending on where you downloaded it from.
If you downloaded a Beta version of Windows 8 from Microsoft, that would be a different story. With the correct drivers installed, it will work fine until about 6 months after the official release date and then begin having periodic restarts if it follows the pattern of the Windows 7 Beta.
Did you make sure that your hardware is supported on Windows 7 and that drivers were available from the manufacturer's site before you installed it?

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
