If you are using RHEL and paying them for support, why not call them and ask for support. And if you are not paying them and are not registered user for RHEL, then the OS in itself is a bad choice. Unless registered on RHN, you will not receive updates via rhn and yum. You will need to use CentOS repos which will in turn make your OS Cent.
For your issue, please check if your wireless card has been detected or not. You can do that using lspci command. If you are not sure, paste the command output in {code}{/code} tags.
Also paste the output of iwconfig command.
