    Did you run the installer CD that it asked to make when you set it up?

    When i installed it it didnt ask me to connect to an internet connection, whereas when i set up parallels it asked me to connect to a wireless.

    I had a similar problem in Parallels with the Networking Devices setup. My solution was to select Bridged Network.
    This is not the same as booting into Bootcamp. If it is solely Bootcamp, then it sounds like a normal Win7 issue - Drivers or Firewall.
    When you setup Bootcamp, did you run the driver programme to install all the Apple drivers ? It is in the Bootcamp folder - Bootcamp install instructions say "double-click the setup.exe file in the WindowsSupport directory"
