im guessing your wifi device using

apparently it's a intel 2200 or the like

RHEL is the same as CentOS (indeed, CentOS is a clone of RHEL), so if you cannot find info on the RHEL support site, may be this can help you:

you can identify your devices using the lspci command

if you need more info, just tell me here

Best Regards
