Unhappy Cannot Get Toshiba Laptop with Centos 6.4 on Network

I have installed Centos 6.4 on my laptop and cannot get either the wireless adapter or the wired ethernet to work. The wireless adapter is an Intel Centrino Advanced N 6200 rev 32. The iwlwifi module is loaded, but does not seem to be working with the hardware.

The ethernet interface is an Atheros AR8152. I found the driver atl1c is loaded but dmesg produced a number of errors for the driver. When I activated the network.

I have another Toshiba laptop with a different wireless adapter and ethernet interface and I was able to find drivers for both of these devices which I could compile and get working on that laptop.

When I have tried to compile the compat-drivers I get numerous errors. I am new at Linux and can use any help anyone is willing to offer.
