Does the wifi adapter show up in Device Manager under Network Adapters? And if so is there an exclamation mark next to it or does it show disabled?

Is there a specific reason why you are using Windows 7 32 Bit? Windows 7 reaches End of Life in January meaning no more security updates and your Windows 7 License will work with Windows 10 Version 1809 Installation Media. Moreover Windows 10 will have the wireless drivers and most other drivers inbuilt for your hardware:
