normally it is rather easy in rhel
plug in the hardware and network cable(s) on the server
and it IS set up
What should be the status of Network Manager
? is this a HOME desktop set up ?
if so the same should apply
I am guessing that Gnome 2 is being used and this IS a cable internet connection
or is it dsl or 56k dial-up
some " wi-fi dongle"
the auto set up should work "out of the box" for a 4Meg,8meg,12meg ,.... cable connection
for cable the std ifup / ifdown will work on RHEL6
but the easiest way with Gnome2 installed is through the menu
