Unhappy WiFi not enabled on Redhat Enterprise Linux 6


Hey everyone!
I recently installed RHEL 6.0 on my machine and unfortunately I can't enable WiFi..
I read many threads and forums but couldn't manage to make it work
Can anyone please help??
I tried some commands to check if the driver is installed:

[root@demo bin]# lspci -nn | grep 0280
03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM43227 802.11b/g/n [14e4:4358]


I would really appreciate any help!!

you need to install the wireless_tool package after that type some following command.
# lspci |grep -i wireless
#ifconfig -a this command will so use the wireless Lan card.
Now configure it properly..
after configuring this,you have to run a scripts.
Open this file.
#vim /etc/networks/interface
auto wlan0
iface wlan0 net dhcp
wpa-ssid YOUR-SSID-HERE
wpa-psk YOUR-SSID-PASSWORD-HERE

now save and close this file and run some more command.
# ifup wlan0
# ifconfig wlan0
#ping router-ip-here
#ping google.com
now restart network service #service network restart..
END
i hope it will work...

i have just checked you message.and the yum isn't configure in your laptop/computer,thats the reason you are unable to install the wireless_tool package...
So firstly configure yum in your pc or install the particular package through CD/DVD...

Or you can take some help through this Link:-
visit on this link...

I really appreciate your help access2nitan..Here's what happening with me:
I'm trying to follow the steps provided in the link you sent me.
Whenever I try to install any of the following rpms, here's what i get:
for the createrepo:
I tried installing deltarpm, python-deltarpm but i get:
Missing Dependency: librpmio.so.1() (64 bit) is needed by package deltarpm- 3.5-0.5 20090913git.e16.x86_64
For the vsftpd i get:
Missing Dependency: libssl.so.10() (64 bit) is needed by package vsftpd- 2.2.2-6 e16.x86_64

Everytime I try to do something on this linux machine i get blocked

To install deltarpm, you need to install "rpm-libs" package as the dependency.

Also to install vsftpd, you need to install "openssl" package.

Once you completed with your yum configuration, you can install other packages without the dependencies problem.

If you don't have a support contract with Redhat you won't have access to their repositories for application installation or upgrade. Hence:

Setting up Install Process
Nothing to do


Play Bonny!
