There should be a driver for these chipsets in the kernel: sky2. I found this by searching for "88E8057" within the source files in the /usr/src/linux/drivers/net directory. The vanilla kernel at kernel.org has this driver, so if your kernel on CentOS is recent, I imagine it has it as well.

Can you post the output from "lsmod", "ifconfig" and "uname -r" please?

OK. That seems like more effort, though.
