Apparently that model came with Win 8 so there aren't a lot of drivers for Win 7 on the Toshiba site.
Right click on Computer and select Manage then Device Manager then View, Show Hidden Devices. Now look in the right pane for yellow flagged devices. Right click on one and select properties then click on the Details tab. Change Property to Hardware IDs. Click on the top one then right click and copy. Paste that into a reply. Repeat for all yellow flagged devices. (Since you don't have Internet you will have to manually copy the numbers to your post)

A network cable is not properly plugged in or may be broken' I'm guessing it's probably something small and I'm just missing it. Trouble is I want to upgrade the operating system on it but can't without wireless so it's a balls 😞

Perhaps the antenna for the WiFi circuit board got disconnected. They usually use a separate card for the WiFi and the antenna is in the screen. There is a small coax that connects to the circuit board.
Any chance of using a wired connection?
As a last resort you can get a USB to WiFi adapter for under $10. This is one from Amazon but there are many:
