looks like you need the atl1e module - http://elrepo.org/linux/elrepo/el6/x86_64/RPMS/

Generally I would not advocate EL6 on a laptop, there are more suitable distros for this which would already have these drivers installed.

i'm sure you can change directory on a web site to find the i386 content.

If you have completed RHCSA training that was done properly, you would know that KVM requires the 64-bit version of RHEL 6.x.

I think you reply without reading the problem. It is illogical to state that the 32 bit os can not have ethernet driver or cant not establish network.

If you have any solution then please quote here. Else dont put garbage here....

You ask for help. I provide what I think is a reasoned reply.

You suggest that despite your RHCSA training, you are "totally new to Linux".

You twist the words in my reply, as I said nothing about drivers for 32-bit OSes.

You then call my reply "garbage".

I am no longer motivated to help you.

[(But it is true that there is less development for 32-bit OSes, so it is more difficult to find many drivers for such. (which is why I pointed to how the RHCSA essentially requires the use of 64-bit OSes, via its heavy emphasis on KVM).]

Dude, if there's one person I wouldn't criticise about their RedHat knowledge it's Mike. He LITERALLY wrote the book. http://www.amazon.com/RHCSA-Linux-Ce.../dp/0071765654
