I'm not familiar with RHEL but I'd expect your adapter name will be something like "eth0". To get an overview which network adapters are known to you machine, open a terminal window and execute "/sbin/ifconfig -a". You should see a list of your network interfaces together with a lot of information like packet counters etc. The names of the interfaces are printed in the first column.
